public class SimpleName
extends Name

AST node for a simple name. A simple name is an identifier other than a keyword, boolean literal ("true", "false") or null literal ("null").

 SimpleName:
     Identifier
 

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

Field Detail

IDENTIFIER_PROPERTY

public static final 
SimplePropertyDescriptor IDENTIFIER_PROPERTY
The "identifier" 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

getIdentifier

public 
String getIdentifier()
Returns this node's identifier.

Returns:
the identifier of this node

setIdentifier

public void setIdentifier(
String identifier)
Sets the identifier of this node to the given value. The identifier should be legal according to the rules of the Java language. Note that keywords are not legal identifiers.

Note that the list of keywords may depend on the version of the language (determined when the AST object was created).

Parameters:
identifier - the identifier of this node
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if the identifier is invalid

isDeclaration

public boolean isDeclaration()
Returns whether this simple name represents a name that is being defined, as opposed to one being referenced. The following positions are considered ones where a name is defined:
  • The type name in a TypeDeclaration node.
  • The method name in a MethodDeclaration node providing isConstructor is false.
  • The variable name in any type of VariableDeclaration node.
  • The enum type name in a EnumDeclaration node.
  • The enum constant name in an EnumConstantDeclaration node.
  • The variable name in an EnhancedForStatement node.
  • The type variable name in a TypeParameter node.
  • The type name in an AnnotationTypeDeclaration node.
  • The member name in an AnnotationTypeMemberDeclaration node.

Note that this is a convenience method that simply checks whether this node appears in the declaration position relative to its parent. It always returns false if this node is unparented.

Returns:
true if this node declares a name, and false otherwise
