Class TypeNameRequestor


  • public abstract class TypeNameRequestor
    extends Object
    A TypeNameRequestor collects search results from a searchAllTypeNames query to a SearchEngine. Clients must subclass this abstract class and pass an instance to the SearchEngine.searchAllTypeNames(...) method. Only top-level and member types are reported. Local types are not reported.

    This class may be subclassed by clients.

      • acceptType

        public void acceptType​(int modifiers,
                               char[] packageName,
                               char[] simpleTypeName,
                               char[][] enclosingTypeNames,
                               String path)
        Accepts a top-level or a member type.

        The default implementation of this method does nothing. Subclasses should override.

        Parameters:
        modifiers - the modifier flags of the type. Note that for source type, these flags may slightly differ from those get after resolution. For example an interface defined by interface A {}, although obviously public, will be returned false by Flags.isPublic(modifiers) due to the fact that its declaration does not explicitly define public flag.
        packageName - the package name as specified in the package declaration (i.e. a dot-separated name)
        simpleTypeName - the simple name of the type
        enclosingTypeNames - if the type is a member type, the simple names of the enclosing types from the outer-most to the direct parent of the type (for example, if the class is x.y.A$B$C then the enclosing types are [A, B]. This is an empty array if the type is a top-level type.
        path - the full path to the resource containing the type. If the resource is a .class file or a source file, this is the full path in the workspace to this resource. If the resource is an archive (that is, a .zip or .jar file), the path is composed of 2 paths separated by IJavaSearchScope.JAR_FILE_ENTRY_SEPARATOR: the first path is the full OS path to the archive (if it is an external archive), or the workspace relative IPath to the archive (if it is an internal archive), the second path is the path to the resource inside the archive.
