      • 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)

      • getOperator

        public PrefixExpression.Operator getOperator()
        Returns the operator of this prefix expression.
        Returns:
        the operator
      • getOperand

        public Expression getOperand()
        Returns the operand of this prefix expression.
        Returns:
        the operand expression node
      • setOperand

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