Class PackageDeclaration


  • public class PackageDeclaration
    extends ASTNode
    Package declaration AST node type.
     PackageDeclaration:
        [ Javadoc ] { Annotation } package Name ;
     
    Note that the standard AST parser only recognizes a Javadoc comment immediately preceding the package declaration when it occurs in the special package-info.java compilation unit (JLS3 7.4.1.1). The Javadoc comment in that file contains the package description.
