    public class QualifiedName
    extends Name
    AST node for a qualified name. A qualified name is defined recursively as a simple name preceded by a name, which qualifies it. Expressing it this way means that the qualifier and the simple name get their own AST nodes.
     QualifiedName:
        Name . SimpleName
     

    See FieldAccess for guidelines on handling other expressions that resemble qualified names.
