interface EmbeddedRealmObject : BaseRealmObject

Marker interface to define an embedded model.

Embedded objects have a slightly different behavior than normal objects:

  • They must have exactly 1 parent linking to them when the embedded object is added to the Realm. Embedded objects can be the parent of other embedded objects. The parent cannot be changed later, except by copying the object.

  • They cannot have fields annotated with @PrimaryKey.

  • When a parent object is deleted, all embedded objects are also deleted.
