    • Field Detail

      • QUALIFIER_PROPERTY

        public static final ChildPropertyDescriptor QUALIFIER_PROPERTY
        The "qualifier" structural property of this node type (child type: Name).
        Since:
        3.0
      • TYPE_ARGUMENTS_PROPERTY

        public static final ChildListPropertyDescriptor TYPE_ARGUMENTS_PROPERTY
        The "typeArguments" structural property of this node type (element type: Type) (added in JLS3 API).
        Since:
        3.1
    • Method Detail

      • propertyDescriptors

        public static List propertyDescriptors​(int apiLevel)
        Returns a list of structural property descriptors for this node type. Clients must not modify the result.
        Parameters:
        apiLevel - the API level; one of the AST.JLS* constants
        Returns:
        a list of property descriptors (element type: StructuralPropertyDescriptor)

      • getQualifier

        public Name getQualifier()
        Returns the qualifier of this "super" method invocation expression, or null if there is none.
        Returns:
        the qualifier name node, or null if there is none
      • isResolvedTypeInferredFromExpectedType

        public boolean isResolvedTypeInferredFromExpectedType()
        Returns true if the resolved return type has been inferred from the assignment context (JLS3 15.12.2.8), false otherwise.

        This information is available only when bindings are requested when the AST is being built

        .
        Returns:
        true if the resolved return type has been inferred from the assignment context (JLS3 15.12.2.8), false otherwise

        3.3
      • setQualifier

        public void setQualifier​(Name name)
        Sets or clears the qualifier of this "super" method invocation expression.
        Parameters:
        name - the qualifier name node, or null if there is none
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if:
        • the node belongs to a different AST
        • the node already has a parent
      • typeArguments

        public List typeArguments()
        Returns the live ordered list of type arguments of this method invocation (added in JLS3 API).
        Returns:
        the live list of type arguments (element type: Type)
        Throws:
        UnsupportedOperationException - if this operation is used in a JLS2 AST
        Since:
        3.1
      • getName

        public SimpleName getName()
        Returns the name of the method invoked in this expression.
        Returns:
        the method name node
      • setName

        public void setName​(SimpleName name)
        Sets the name of the method invoked in this expression to the given name.
        Parameters:
        name - the new method name
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if:
        • the node belongs to a different AST
        • the node already has a parent
      • arguments

        public List arguments()
        Returns the live ordered list of argument expressions in this "super" method invocation expression.
        Returns:
        the live list of argument expressions (element type: Expression)
      • resolveMethodBinding

        public IMethodBinding resolveMethodBinding()
        Resolves and returns the binding for the method invoked by this expression.

        Note that bindings are generally unavailable unless requested when the AST is being built.

        Returns:
        the method binding, or null if the binding cannot be resolved
