 package org.eclipse.jdt.core.jdom;

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).

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.
Noimplement:
This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.
 
 public interface IDOMType extends IDOMMember {
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:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException if null is specified
 
 public void addSuperInterface(String interfaceNamethrows IllegalArgumentException;

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
 
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).

Returns:
the name of this type
 
 public String getName();
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
 
 public String getSuperclass();
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
 
Returns whether this type is a class.

Returns:
true for classes, and false for interfaces
public boolean isClass();

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
boolean isEnum();

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
boolean isAnnotation();

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
public void setClass(boolean b);

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
public void setEnum(boolean b);

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
Since:
3.0
public void setAnnotation(boolean b);

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
Since:
3.0
void setTypeParameters(String[] typeParameters);

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).

Parameters:
name the given name
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException if null is specified
public void setName(String namethrows IllegalArgumentException;
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
public void setSuperclass(String superclassName);
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
public void setSuperInterfaces(String[] interfaceNames);
