Eclipse JDT
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom
Class ArrayCreation

java.lang.Object
  extended by 

org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.ASTNode
      extended by 

org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.Expression
          extended by 
org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom.ArrayCreation

public class ArrayCreation
extends Expression

Array creation expression AST node type. For JLS2:

 ArrayCreation:
    new PrimitiveType [ Expression ] { [ Expression ] } { [ ] }
    new TypeName [ Expression ] { [ Expression ] } { [ ] }
    new PrimitiveType [ ] { [ ] } ArrayInitializer
    new TypeName [ ] { [ ] } ArrayInitializer
 

The mapping from Java language syntax to AST nodes is as follows:

  • the type node is the array type of the creation expression, with one level of array per set of square brackets,
  • the dimension expressions are collected into the dimensions list.

For JLS3, type arguments are added:
 ArrayCreation:
    new PrimitiveType [ Expression ] { [ Expression ] } { [ ] }
    new TypeName [ < Type { , Type } > ]
        [ Expression ] { [ Expression ] } { [ ] }
    new PrimitiveType [ ] { [ ] } ArrayInitializer
    new TypeName [ < Type { , Type } > ]
        [ ] { [ ] } ArrayInitializer
 

Since:
2.0
Restriction:
This class is not intended to be instantiated by clients.
