org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom
Class ArrayType

java.lang.Object
  extended by 

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

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

public class ArrayType
extends Type

Type node for an array type.

Array types are expressed in a recursive manner, one dimension at a time.

 ArrayType:
    Type [ ]
 

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

Field Summary
static  ChildPropertyDescriptor COMPONENT_TYPE_PROPERTY
          The "componentType" structural property of this node type.

Field Detail

COMPONENT_TYPE_PROPERTY

public static final 
ChildPropertyDescriptor COMPONENT_TYPE_PROPERTY
The "componentType" structural property of this node type.

Since:
3.0
Method Detail

propertyDescriptors

public static 
List propertyDescriptors(int apiLevel)
Returns a list of structural property descriptors for this node type. Clients must not modify the result.

Parameters:
apiLevel - the API level; one of the AST.JLS* constants
Returns:
a list of property descriptors (element type: StructuralPropertyDescriptor)
Since:
3.0

getComponentType

public 
Type getComponentType()
Returns the component type of this array type. The component type may be another array type.

Returns:
the component type node

setComponentType

public void setComponentType(
Type componentType)
Sets the component type of this array type. The component type may be another array type.

Parameters:
componentType - the component type
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if:
  • the node belongs to a different AST
  • the node already has a parent
  • a cycle in would be created

getElementType

public 
Type getElementType()
Returns the element type of this array type. The element type is never an array type.

This is a convenience method that descends a chain of nested array types until it reaches a non-array type.

Returns:
the component type node

getDimensions

public int getDimensions()
Returns the number of dimensions in this array type.

This is a convenience method that descends a chain of nested array types until it reaches a non-array type.

Returns:
the number of dimensions (always positive)
