Returns whether this expression node is the site of a boxing conversion (JLS3 5.1.7).
Resolves and returns the compile-time constant expression value as specified in JLS2 15.28, if this expression has one.
Resolves and returns the binding for the type of this expression.
Returns whether this expression node is the site of an unboxing conversion (JLS3 5.1.8).

Resolving constant expressions takes into account the value of simple and qualified names that refer to constant variables (JLS2 4.12.4).
Note 1: enum constants are not considered constant expressions.
The result is always
null for these.
Note 2: Compile-time constant expressions cannot denote
NullLiteral nodes are not constant expressions.
The result is
null for these nonetheless.
