    • 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)
        Since:
        3.0
      • getBody

        public Statement getBody()
        Returns the body of this do statement.
        Returns:
        the body statement node
      • setBody

        public void setBody​(Statement statement)
        Sets the body of this do statement.

        Special note: The Java language does not allow a local variable declaration to appear as the body of a do statement (they may only appear within a block). However, the AST will allow a VariableDeclarationStatement as the body of a DoStatement. To get something that will compile, be sure to embed the VariableDeclarationStatement inside a Block.

        Parameters:
        statement - the body statement node
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if:
        • the node belongs to a different AST
        • the node already has a parent
        • a cycle in would be created
      • getExpression

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

        public void setExpression​(Expression expression)
        Sets the expression of this do statement.
        Parameters:
        expression - the expression node
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if:
        • the node belongs to a different AST
        • the node already has a parent
        • a cycle in would be created
