Method Detail

getTypeDescriptor

ITypeDescriptor getTypeDescriptor()
Returns the value of the ' Type Descriptor ' reference.

If the meaning of the 'Type Descriptor' reference isn't clear, there really should be more of a description here...

Returns:
the value of the 'Type Descriptor' reference.
See Also:
setTypeDescriptor(ITypeDescriptor), SymbolPackage.getIObjectSymbol_TypeDescriptor()

setTypeDescriptor

void setTypeDescriptor(
ITypeDescriptor value)
Sets the value of the ' Type Descriptor' reference.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Type Descriptor' reference.
See Also:
getTypeDescriptor()

isReadable

boolean isReadable()
Returns the value of the ' Readable ' attribute.

If the meaning of the 'Readable' attribute isn't clear, there really should be more of a description here...

Returns:
the value of the 'Readable' attribute.
See Also:
setReadable(boolean), SymbolPackage.getIObjectSymbol_Readable()

setReadable

void setReadable(boolean value)
Sets the value of the ' Readable' attribute.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Readable' attribute.
See Also:
isReadable()

isWritable

boolean isWritable()
Returns the value of the ' Writable ' attribute.

If the meaning of the 'Writable' attribute isn't clear, there really should be more of a description here...

Returns:
the value of the 'Writable' attribute.
See Also:
setWritable(boolean), SymbolPackage.getIObjectSymbol_Writable()

setWritable

void setWritable(boolean value)
Sets the value of the ' Writable' attribute.

Parameters:
value - the new value of the 'Writable' attribute.
See Also:
isWritable()

supportsCoercion

boolean supportsCoercion(java.lang.String typeSignature)

Parameters:
typeSignature -
Returns:
true if this object can be coerced (is an instanceof) the type specified in the fully qualified typeSignature

coerce

ITypeDescriptor coerce(java.lang.String typeSignature)

Parameters:
typeSignature -
Returns:
a type descriptor supporting a class cast of this object to the request typeSignature, or null if such a cast is not supported. Returns non-null iff supportsCoercion(typeSignature) == false

call

ISymbol call(java.lang.String methodName,
             EList methodArguments,
             java.lang.String symbolName)

Parameters:
methodName -
methodArguments -
symbolName -
Returns:
a symbol resulting from calling the call or null if can't be determined. Generally, the symbolName should be used for the getName() value of the returned symbol, although implementers are not bound to this if a more meaningful value can be calculated.
