        Since:
        3.0
      • TYPE_ARGUMENTS_PROPERTY

        public static final ChildListPropertyDescriptor TYPE_ARGUMENTS_PROPERTY

    • 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
      • getExpression

        public Expression getExpression()
        Returns the expression of this super constructor invocation statement, or null if there is none.
        Returns:
        the expression node, or null if there is none
      • setExpression

        public void setExpression​(Expression expression)
        Sets or clears the expression of this super constructor invocation statement.
        Parameters:
        expression - the expression node, or null if there is none
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if:
        • the node belongs to a different AST
        • the node already has a parent
        • a cycle in would be created
      • typeArguments

        public List typeArguments()
        Returns the live ordered list of type arguments of this constructor invocation (added in JLS3 API).
        Returns:
        the live list of type arguments (element type: Type)
        Throws:
        UnsupportedOperationException - if this operation is used in a JLS2 AST
        Since:
        3.1
      • arguments

        public List arguments()
        Returns the live ordered list of argument expressions in this super constructor invocation statement.
        Returns:
        the live list of argument expressions (element type: Expression)
      • resolveConstructorBinding

        public IMethodBinding resolveConstructorBinding()
        Resolves and returns the binding for the constructor invoked by this expression.

        Note that bindings are generally unavailable unless requested when the AST is being built.

        Returns:
        the constructor binding, or null if the binding cannot be resolved
