      • 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)
        Since:
        3.0
      • getType

        public Type getType()
        Returns the type in this cast expression.
        Returns:
        the type
      • setType

        public void setType​(Type type)
        Sets the type in this cast expression to the given type.
        Parameters:
        type - the new type
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if:
        • the node belongs to a different AST
        • the node already has a parent
      • getExpression

        public Expression getExpression()
        Returns the expression of this cast expression.
        Returns:
        the expression node
      • setExpression

        public void setExpression​(Expression expression)
        Sets the expression of this cast expression.
        Parameters:
        expression - the new expression node
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if:
        • the node belongs to a different AST
        • the node already has a parent
