Method Detail

isSimpleName

public final boolean isSimpleName()
Returns whether this name is a simple name (SimpleName).

Returns:
true if this is a simple name, and false otherwise

isQualifiedName

public final boolean isQualifiedName()
Returns whether this name is a qualified name (QualifiedName).

Returns:
true if this is a qualified name, and false otherwise

resolveBinding

public final 
IBinding resolveBinding()
Resolves and returns the binding for the entity referred to by this name.

Note that bindings are generally unavailable unless requested when the AST is being built.

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

getFullyQualifiedName

public final 
String getFullyQualifiedName()
Returns the standard dot-separated representation of this name. If the name is a simple name, the result is the name's identifier. If the name is a qualified name, the result is the name of the qualifier (as computed by this method) followed by "." followed by the name's identifier.

Returns:
the fully qualified name
