Hi everyone,

I've started to use the library recently. Due to some reasons, I need to detect if an Schema field is required or not on the probuff level. I know I could simply try to serialize the Pojo and capture the exception, but I would like to detect it before hand.

Is there anyway of achieving that? I have checked on the Schema and Field classes and I don't see anything informing about this metadata.

Thanks.

If you're using protostuff-runtime, then no.  All fields are currently treated as optional. 
If you're using the compiler, you can extend the codegen template and add metadata that way.
I have checked on the Schema and Field classes and I don't see anything informing about this metadata.

Thanks.
