Method Detail

getTypeNameProperty

public final 
ChildPropertyDescriptor getTypeNameProperty()
Returns structural property descriptor for the "typeName" property of this node.

Returns:
the property descriptor

isModifier

public boolean isModifier()
Description copied from interface: IExtendedModifier
Returns whether this extended modifier is a standard modifier.

Specified by:
isModifier in interface IExtendedModifier
Returns:
true if this is a standard modifier (instance of Modifier), and false otherwise
See Also:
IExtendedModifier.isModifier()

isAnnotation

public boolean isAnnotation()
Description copied from interface: IExtendedModifier
Returns whether this extended modifier is an annotation.

Specified by:
isAnnotation in interface IExtendedModifier
Returns:
true if this is an annotation (instance of a subclass of Annotation), and false otherwise
See Also:
IExtendedModifier.isAnnotation()

getTypeName

public 
Name getTypeName()
Returns the annotation type name of this annotation.

Returns:
the annotation type name

setTypeName

public void setTypeName(
Name typeName)
Sets the annotation type name of this annotation.

Parameters:
typeName - the annotation type name
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if:
  • the node belongs to a different AST
  • the node already has a parent

isNormalAnnotation

public boolean isNormalAnnotation()
Returns whether this is a normal annotation ( NormalAnnotation).

Returns:
true if this is a normal annotation, and false otherwise

isMarkerAnnotation

public boolean isMarkerAnnotation()
Returns whether this is a marker annotation ( MarkerAnnotation).

Returns:
true if this is a marker annotation, and false otherwise

isSingleMemberAnnotation

public boolean isSingleMemberAnnotation()
Returns whether this is a single member annotation. ( SingleMemberAnnotation).

Returns:
true if this is a single member annotation, and false otherwise

resolveAnnotationBinding

public 
IAnnotationBinding resolveAnnotationBinding()
Resolves and returns the resolved annotation for this annotation.

Note that bindings (which includes resolved annotations) are generally unavailable unless requested when the AST is being built.

Returns:
the resolved annotation, or null if the annotation cannot be resolved
