A type hierarchy provides navigations between a type and its resolved supertypes and subtypes for a specific type or for all types within a region. Supertypes may extend outside of the type hierarchy's region in which it was created such that the root of the hierarchy is always included. For example, if a type hierarchy is created for a java.io.File, and the region the hierarchy was created in is the package fragment java.io, the supertype java.lang.Object will still be included. As a historical quirk, java.lang.Object has always been included in type hierarchies created on interface types.

A type hierarchy is static and can become stale. Although consistent when created, it does not automatically track changes in the model. As changes in the model potentially invalidate the hierarchy, change notifications are sent to registered ITypeHierarchyChangedListeners. Listeners should use the exists method to determine if the hierarchy has become completely invalid (for example, when the type or project the hierarchy was created on has been removed). To refresh a hierarchy, use the refresh method.

The type hierarchy may contain cycles due to malformed supertype declarations. Most type hierarchy queries are oblivious to cycles; the getAll* methods are implemented such that they are unaffected by cycles.

Noimplement:
This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.
 
 public interface ITypeHierarchy {
Adds the given listener for changes to this type hierarchy. Listeners are notified when this type hierarchy changes and needs to be refreshed. Has no effect if an identical listener is already registered.

Parameters:
listener the listener
 
Returns whether the given type is part of this hierarchy.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
true if the given type is part of this hierarchy, false otherwise
 
 boolean contains(IType type);
Returns whether the type and project this hierarchy was created on exist.

Returns:
true if the type and project this hierarchy was created on exist, false otherwise
 
 boolean exists();
Returns all classes in this type hierarchy's graph, in no particular order. Any classes in the creation region which were not resolved to have any subtypes or supertypes are not included in the result.

Returns:
all classes in this type hierarchy's graph
 
Returns all interfaces in this type hierarchy's graph, in no particular order. Any interfaces in the creation region which were not resolved to have any subtypes or supertypes are not included in the result.

Returns:
all interfaces in this type hierarchy's graph
 
Returns all resolved subtypes (direct and indirect) of the given type, in no particular order, limited to the types in this type hierarchy's graph. An empty array is returned if there are no resolved subtypes for the given type.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
all resolved subtypes (direct and indirect) of the given type
 
Returns all resolved superclasses of the given class, in bottom-up order. An empty array is returned if there are no resolved superclasses for the given class.

NOTE: once a type hierarchy has been created, it is more efficient to query the hierarchy for superclasses than to query a class recursively up the superclass chain. Querying an element performs a dynamic resolution, whereas the hierarchy returns a pre-computed result.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
all resolved superclasses of the given class, in bottom-up order, an empty array if none.
Returns all resolved superinterfaces (direct and indirect) of the given type. If the given type is a class, this includes all superinterfaces of all superclasses. An empty array is returned if there are no resolved superinterfaces for the given type.

NOTE: once a type hierarchy has been created, it is more efficient to query the hierarchy for superinterfaces than to query a type recursively. Querying an element performs a dynamic resolution, whereas the hierarchy returns a pre-computed result.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
all resolved superinterfaces (direct and indirect) of the given type, an empty array if none
Returns all resolved supertypes of the given type, in bottom-up order. An empty array is returned if there are no resolved supertypes for the given type.

Note that java.lang.Object is NOT considered to be a supertype of any interface type.

NOTE: once a type hierarchy has been created, it is more efficient to query the hierarchy for supertypes than to query a type recursively up the supertype chain. Querying an element performs a dynamic resolution, whereas the hierarchy returns a pre-computed result.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
all resolved supertypes of the given class, in bottom-up order, an empty array if none
Returns all types in this type hierarchy's graph, in no particular order. Any types in the creation region which were not resolved to have any subtypes or supertypes are not included in the result.

Returns:
all types in this type hierarchy's graph
Return the flags associated with the given type (would be equivalent to IMember.getFlags()), or -1 if this information wasn't cached on the hierarchy during its computation.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
the modifier flags for this member
Since:
2.0

Flags
Returns all interfaces resolved to extend the given interface, in no particular order, limited to the interfaces in this hierarchy's graph. Returns an empty collection if the given type is a class, or if no interfaces were resolved to extend the given interface.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
all interfaces resolved to extend the given interface limited to the interfaces in this hierarchy's graph, an empty array if none.
Returns all classes resolved to implement the given interface, in no particular order, limited to the classes in this type hierarchy's graph. Returns an empty collection if the given type is a class, or if no classes were resolved to implement the given interface.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
all classes resolved to implement the given interface limited to the classes in this type hierarchy's graph, an empty array if none
Returns all classes in the graph which have no resolved superclass, in no particular order.

Returns:
all classes in the graph which have no resolved superclass
Returns all interfaces in the graph which have no resolved superinterfaces, in no particular order.

Returns:
all interfaces in the graph which have no resolved superinterfaces
Returns the direct resolved subclasses of the given class, in no particular order, limited to the classes in this type hierarchy's graph. Returns an empty collection if the given type is an interface, or if no classes were resolved to be subclasses of the given class.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
the direct resolved subclasses of the given class limited to the classes in this type hierarchy's graph, an empty collection if none.
Returns the direct resolved subtypes of the given type, in no particular order, limited to the types in this type hierarchy's graph. If the type is a class, this returns the resolved subclasses. If the type is an interface, this returns both the classes which implement the interface and the interfaces which extend it.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
the direct resolved subtypes of the given type limited to the types in this type hierarchy's graph
Returns the resolved superclass of the given class, or null if the given class has no superclass, the superclass could not be resolved, or if the given type is an interface.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
the resolved superclass of the given class, or null if the given class has no superclass, the superclass could not be resolved, or if the given type is an interface
Returns the direct resolved interfaces that the given type implements or extends, in no particular order, limited to the interfaces in this type hierarchy's graph. For classes, this gives the interfaces that the class implements. For interfaces, this gives the interfaces that the interface extends.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
the direct resolved interfaces that the given type implements or extends limited to the interfaces in this type hierarchy's graph
Returns the resolved supertypes of the given type, in no particular order, limited to the types in this type hierarchy's graph. For classes, this returns its superclass and the interfaces that the class implements. For interfaces, this returns the interfaces that the interface extends. As a consequence java.lang.Object is NOT considered to be a supertype of any interface type.

Parameters:
type the given type
Returns:
the resolved supertypes of the given type limited to the types in this type hierarchy's graph
Returns the type this hierarchy was computed for. Returns null if this hierarchy was computed for a region.

Returns:
the type this hierarchy was computed for
Re-computes the type hierarchy reporting progress.

Parameters:
monitor the given progress monitor
Throws:
JavaModelException if unable to refresh the hierarchy
void refresh(IProgressMonitor monitorthrows JavaModelException;
Removes the given listener from this type hierarchy. Has no effect if an identical listener is not registered.

Parameters:
listener the listener
Stores the type hierarchy in an output stream. This stored hierarchy can be load by IType#loadTypeHierachy(IJavaProject, InputStream, IProgressMonitor). Listeners of this hierarchy are not stored. Only hierarchies created by the following methods can be store:
  • IType#newSupertypeHierarchy(IProgressMonitor)
  • IType#newTypeHierarchy(IJavaProject, IProgressMonitor)
  • IType#newTypeHierarchy(IProgressMonitor)

Parameters:
outputStream output stream where the hierarchy will be stored
monitor the given progress monitor
Throws:
JavaModelException if unable to store the hierarchy in the ouput stream
Since:
2.1
