Interface ClassDeclaration

All Superinterfaces:
Declaration, MemberDeclaration, TypeDeclaration
All Known Subinterfaces:

public interface ClassDeclaration extends TypeDeclaration
Represents the declaration of a class. For the declaration of an interface, see InterfaceDeclaration. Provides access to information about the class, its members, and its constructors. Note that an enum is a kind of class.

While a ClassDeclaration represents the declaration of a class, a ClassType represents a class type. See TypeDeclaration for more on this distinction.

DeclarationFilter provides a simple way to select just the items of interest when a method returns a collection of declarations.
