    • Method Detail

      • getCategories

        String[] getCategories()
                        throws JavaModelException
        Returns the categories defined by this member's Javadoc. A category is the identifier following the tag @category in the member's Javadoc. Returns an empty array if no category is defined in this member's Javadoc.
        Returns:
        the categories defined by this member's doc
        Throws:
        JavaModelException - if this element does not exist or if an exception occurs while accessing its corresponding resource.
        Since:
        3.2
      • getClassFile

        IClassFile getClassFile()
        Returns the class file in which this member is declared, or null if this member is not declared in a class file (for example, a source type). This is a handle-only method.
        Returns:
        the class file in which this member is declared, or null if this member is not declared in a class file (for example, a source type)
      • getCompilationUnit

        ICompilationUnit getCompilationUnit()
        Returns the compilation unit in which this member is declared, or null if this member is not declared in a compilation unit (for example, a binary type). This is a handle-only method.
        Returns:
        the compilation unit in which this member is declared, or null if this member is not declared in a compilation unit (for example, a binary type)
      • getDeclaringType

        IType getDeclaringType()
        Returns the type in which this member is declared, or null if this member is not declared in a type (for example, a top-level type). This is a handle-only method.
        Returns:
        the type in which this member is declared, or null if this member is not declared in a type (for example, a top-level type)
      • getFlags

        int getFlags()
              throws JavaModelException
        Returns the modifier flags for this member. The flags can be examined using class Flags.

        For binary members, flags from the class file as well as derived flags Flags.AccAnnotationDefault and Flags.AccDefaultMethod are included.

        For source members, only flags as indicated in the source are returned. Thus if an interface defines a method void myMethod();, the flags don't include the 'public' flag. Source flags include Flags.AccAnnotationDefault as well.

        Returns:
        the modifier flags for this member
        Throws:
        JavaModelException - if this element does not exist or if an exception occurs while accessing its corresponding resource.

      • getJavadocRange

        ISourceRange getJavadocRange()
                              throws JavaModelException
        Returns the Javadoc range if this element is from source or if this element is a binary element with an attached source, null otherwise.

        If this element is from source, the javadoc range is extracted from the corresponding source.

        If this element is from a binary, the javadoc is extracted from the attached source if present.

        If this element's openable is not consistent, then null is returned.

        Returns:
        a source range corresponding to the javadoc source or null if no source is available, this element has no javadoc comment or this element's openable is not consistent
        Throws:
        JavaModelException - if this element does not exist or if an exception occurs while accessing its corresponding resource.
        Since:
        3.2

      • getOccurrenceCount

        int getOccurrenceCount()
        Returns the position relative to the order this member is defined in the source. Numbering starts at 1 (thus the first occurrence is occurrence 1, not occurrence 0).

        Two members m1 and m2 that are equal (e.g. 2 fields with the same name in the same type) can be distinguished using their occurrence counts. If member m1 appears first in the source, it will have an occurrence count of 1. If member m2 appears right after member m1, it will have an occurrence count of 2.

        The occurrence count can be used to distinguish initializers inside a type or anonymous types inside a method.

        This is a handle-only method. The member may or may not be present.

        Returns:
        the position relative to the order this member is defined in the source
        Since:
        3.2
      • getTypeRoot

        ITypeRoot getTypeRoot()
        Returns the Java type root in which this member is declared. This is a handle-only method.
        Returns:
        the Java type root in which this member is declared.
        Since:
        3.3
      • getType

        IType getType​(String name,
                      int occurrenceCount)
        Returns the local or anonymous type declared in this source member with the given simple name and/or with the specified position relative to the order they are defined in the source. The name is empty if it is an anonymous type. Numbering starts at 1 (thus the first occurrence is occurrence 1, not occurrence 0). This is a handle-only method. The type may or may not exist. Throws a RuntimeException if this member is not a source member.
        Parameters:
        name - the given simple name
        occurrenceCount - the specified position
        Returns:
        the type with the given name and/or with the specified position relative to the order they are defined in the source

      • isBinary

        boolean isBinary()
        Returns whether this member is from a class file. This is a handle-only method.
        Returns:
        true if from a class file, and false if from a compilation unit
