Interface IDOMType

  • All Superinterfaces:
    Cloneable, IDOMMember, IDOMNode

    public interface IDOMType
    extends IDOMMember
    Deprecated.
    The JDOM was made obsolete by the addition in 2.0 of the more powerful, fine-grained DOM/AST API found in the org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom package.
    Represents a source type in a compilation unit, either as a top-level type or a member type. The corresponding syntactic units are ClassDeclaration (JLS2 8.1) and InterfaceDeclaration (JLS2 9.1). Enumeration types and annotation types, added in J2SE 1.5, are represented as classes and interfaces, respectively.

    Allowable child types for a type are IDOMType, IDOMField, IDOMMethod, and IDOMInitializer. Children are listed in the order in which they appear in the source. The parent of a type is a type (in the case of a member type) or a compilation unit (in the case of a top-level type).

    Restriction:
    This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.

      • addSuperInterface

        void addSuperInterface​(String interfaceName)
                        throws IllegalArgumentException
        Deprecated.
        Adds the given interface name to the names of interfaces that this type implements or extends (the name will be added after the existing interface names). This is a convenience method. For classes, this represents the interfaces that this class implements. For interfaces, this represents the interfaces that this interface extends. The name may or may not be fully qualified.
        Parameters:
        interfaceName - the syntax for an interface name is defined by Interfaces in ClassDeclaration (JLS2 8.1). Type names must be specified as they would appear in source code. For example: "Cloneable", "java.io.Serializable".
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if null is specified
      • getTypeParameters

        String[] getTypeParameters()
        Deprecated.
        Returns the formal type parameters for this type. Returns an empty array if this method has no formal type parameters.

        Formal type parameters are as they appear in the source code; for example: "X extends List<String> & Serializable".

        Returns:
        the formal type parameters of this type, in the order declared in the source, an empty array if none
        Since:
        3.0
      • getName

        String getName()
        Deprecated.
        The IDOMType refinement of this IDOMNode method returns the name of this type. The name of a class is defined by ClassDeclaration (JLS2 8.1); the name of an interface is defined by InterfaceDeclaration (JLS2 9.1).
        Specified by:
        getName in interface IDOMNode
        Returns:
        the name of this type
      • getSuperclass

        String getSuperclass()
        Deprecated.
        Returns the name of this type's superclass. The syntax for a superclass name is specified by Super in ClassDeclaration (JLS2 8.1). Type names must be specified as they would appear in source code. For example: "Object", or "java.io.File". As of J2SE 1.5, the superclass may also include parameterized types like "ArrayList<String>".
        Returns:
        the superclass name, or null if this type represents an interface or if no superclass has been assigned to this class
      • getSuperInterfaces

        String[] getSuperInterfaces()
        Deprecated.
        Returns the names of interfaces that this type implements or extends, in the order in which they are listed in the source, or an empty array if no superinterfaces are present. The syntax for interface names is defined by Interfaces in ClassDeclaration (JLS2 8.1). Type names appear as they would in source code. For example: "Cloneable", or "java.io.Serializable". As of J2SE 1.5, superinterfaces may also include parameterized types like "List<String>".

        For classes, this method returns the interfaces that this class implements. For interfaces, this method returns the interfaces that this interface extends.

        Returns:
        the list of interface names
      • isClass

        boolean isClass()
        Deprecated.
        Returns whether this type is a class.
        Returns:
        true for classes, and false for interfaces
      • isEnum

        boolean isEnum()
        Deprecated.
        Returns whether this type represents an enumeration class ("enum" instead of "class").
        Returns:
        true if this type represents an enumeration class, false otherwise
        Since:
        3.0
      • isAnnotation

        boolean isAnnotation()
        Deprecated.
        Returns whether this type represents an annotation type ("@interface" instead of "interface").
        Returns:
        true if this type represents an annotation type, false otherwise
        Since:
        3.0
      • setClass

        void setClass​(boolean b)
        Deprecated.
        Sets whether this type is a class or an interface. If this type is a class, and is changed to an interface, this type's superclass becomes null. When a class becomes an interface or an interface becomes a class, superinterfaces remain (as part of an implements clause for classes, or an extends clause for interfaces).
        Parameters:
        b - true for classes, and false for interfaces
      • setEnum

        void setEnum​(boolean b)
        Deprecated.
        Sets whether this type represents an enumeration class. If this type is a class and is changed to an enum, this type's superclass becomes null. If this type is an interface (including an annotation type), and is changed to an enum, this type is also changed to a class.
        Parameters:
        b - true for enum classes, and false otherwise
        Since:
        3.0
      • setAnnotation

        void setAnnotation​(boolean b)
        Deprecated.
        Sets whether this type represents an annotation type ("@interface" instead of "interface"). If this type is a interface and is changed to an enum, this type's superclass becomes null and its superinterface list becomes empty. If this type is an class (including an enum), and is changed to an annotation type, this type is also changed to an interface.
        Parameters:
        b - true for an annotation type, and false otherwise

        3.0
      • setTypeParameters

        void setTypeParameters​(String[] typeParameters)
        Deprecated.
        Sets the formal type parameters for this type.

        Formal type parameters are given as they appear in the source code; for example: "X extends List<String> & Serializable".

        Parameters:
        typeParameters - the formal type parameters of this type, in the order to appear in the source, an empty array if none

      • setName

        void setName​(String name)
              throws IllegalArgumentException
        Deprecated.
        The IDOMType refinement of this IDOMNode method sets the name of this type. The name of a class is defined by ClassDeclaration (JLS2 8.1); the name of an interface is defined by InterfaceDeclaration (JLS2 9.1).
        Specified by:
        setName in interface IDOMNode
        Parameters:
        name - the given name

      • setSuperclass

        void setSuperclass​(String superclassName)
        Deprecated.
        Sets the name of this type's superclass. Has no effect if this type represents an interface. A null name indicates that no superclass name (extends clause) should appear in the source code. The syntax for a superclass name is specified by Super in ClassDeclaration (JLS2 8.1). Type names must be specified as they would appear in source code. For example: "Object", or "java.io.File". As of J2SE 1.5, the superclass may also include parameterized types like "ArrayList<String>".
        Parameters:
        superclassName - the superclass name, or null if this type should have to no explicitly specified superclass
      • setSuperInterfaces

        void setSuperInterfaces​(String[] interfaceNames)
        Deprecated.
        Sets the names of interfaces that this type implements or extends, in the order in which they are to be listed in the source. An empty array parameter indicates that no superinterfaces are present. The syntax for interface names is defined by Interfaces in ClassDeclaration (JLS2 8.1). Type names appear as they would in source code. For example: "Cloneable", or "java.io.Serializable". As of J2SE 1.5, superinterfaces may also include parameterized types like "List<String>".

        For classes, this method sets the interfaces that this class implements. For interfaces, this method sets the interfaces that this interface extends.

        Parameters:
        interfaceNames - the list of interface names
