 import java.util.Map;
A hook allowing a custom transform/untransform of the raw attribute values immediately before writing them into DynamoDB and immediately after reading them out of DynamoDB, but with extra context about the model class not available at the raw AmazonDynamoDB level.

This interface contains both a transform method and a corresponding untransform method. These methods SHOULD be inverses, such that untransform(transform(value)) == value.

 public interface AttributeTransformer {
Parameters for the transform and untransform methods, so we don't have to break the interface in order to add additional parameters.

Consuming code should NOT implement this interface.

     interface Parameters<T> {
Returns the raw attribute values to be transformed or untransformed. The returned map is not modifiable.

the raw attribute values to transform or untransform

Returns true if this transformation is being called as part of a partial update operation. If true, the attributes returned by getAttributeValues() do not represent the entire new item, but only a snapshot of the attributes which are getting new values.

Implementations which do not support transforming a partial view of an item (for example, because they need to calculate a signature based on all of the item's attributes that won't be valid if only a subset of the attributes are taken into consideration) should check this flag and throw an exception rather than than corrupting the data in DynamoDB.

This method always returns false for instances passed to AttributeTransformer.untransform(
