Class PrimitiveType


  • public class PrimitiveType
    extends AnnotatableType
    Primitive type nodes.
     PrimitiveType:
        { Annotation } byte
        { Annotation } short
        { Annotation } char
        { Annotation } int
        { Annotation } long
        { Annotation } float
        { Annotation } double
        { Annotation } boolean
        { Annotation } void
     

    Note that due to the fact that AST nodes belong to a specific AST and have a specific parent, there needs to multiple instances of these nodes.

    Since:
    2.0
    Restriction:
    This class is not intended to be instantiated by clients.
    • Field Detail

      • CHAR

        public static final PrimitiveType.Code CHAR
        Type code for the primitive type "char".
      • BOOLEAN

        public static final PrimitiveType.Code BOOLEAN
        Type code for the primitive type "boolean".
      • SHORT

        public static final PrimitiveType.Code SHORT
        Type code for the primitive type "short".
      • LONG

        public static final PrimitiveType.Code LONG
        Type code for the primitive type "long".
      • FLOAT

        public static final PrimitiveType.Code FLOAT
        Type code for the primitive type "float".
      • DOUBLE

        public static final PrimitiveType.Code DOUBLE
        Type code for the primitive type "double".
      • BYTE

        public static final PrimitiveType.Code BYTE
        Type code for the primitive type "byte".
      • VOID

        public static final PrimitiveType.Code VOID
        Type code for the primitive type "void". Note that "void" is special in that its only legitimate uses are as a method return type and as a type literal.
      • ANNOTATIONS_PROPERTY

        public static final ChildListPropertyDescriptor ANNOTATIONS_PROPERTY
        The "annotations" structural property of this node type (element type: Annotation).

      • toCode

        public static PrimitiveType.Code toCode​(String token)
        Returns the primitive type code corresponding to the given string, or null if none.

        toCode is the converse of toString: that is, PrimitiveType.Code.toCode(code.toString()) == code for all type code code.

        Parameters:
        token - the standard name of the primitive type
        Returns:
        the primitive type code, or null if none
      • 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
      • getPrimitiveTypeCode

        public PrimitiveType.Code getPrimitiveTypeCode()
        Returns the primitive type code.
        Returns:
        one of the primitive type code constants declared in this class
      • setPrimitiveTypeCode

        public void setPrimitiveTypeCode​(PrimitiveType.Code typeCode)
        Sets the primitive type code.
        Parameters:
        typeCode - one of the primitive type code constants declared in this class
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if the argument is incorrect
