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

public class SuperMethodInvocation
extends Expression

Simple or qualified "super" method invocation expression AST node type. For JLS2:

 SuperMethodInvocation:

 SuperMethodInvocation:
     [ ClassName . ] super .
         [ < Type { , Type } > ]
         Identifier ( [ Expression { , Expression } ] )
 

Since:

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

getQualifier

public 
Name getQualifier()
Returns the qualifier of this "super" method invocation expression, or null if there is none.

Returns:
the qualifier name node, or null if there is none

isResolvedTypeInferredFromExpectedType

public boolean isResolvedTypeInferredFromExpectedType()
Returns true if the resolved return type has been inferred from the assignment context (JLS3 15.12.2.8), false otherwise.

This information is available only when bindings are requested when the AST is being built

.

Returns:
true if the resolved return type has been inferred from the assignment context (JLS3 15.12.2.8), false otherwise
Since:
3.3

setQualifier

public void setQualifier(
Name name)
Sets or clears the qualifier of this "super" method invocation expression.

Parameters:
name - the qualifier name node, or null if there is none
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if:
  • the node belongs to a different AST
  • the node already has a parent

typeArguments

public 
List typeArguments()
Returns the live ordered list of type arguments of this method invocation (added in JLS3 API).

Returns:
the live list of type arguments (element type: Type)
Throws:
UnsupportedOperationException - if this operation is used in a JLS2 AST
Since:
3.1

getName

public 
SimpleName getName()
Returns the name of the method invoked in this expression.

Returns:
the method name node

setName

public void setName(
SimpleName name)
Sets the name of the method invoked in this expression to the given name.

Parameters:
name - the new method name
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if:
  • the node belongs to a different AST
  • the node already has a parent

arguments

public 
List arguments()
Returns the live ordered list of argument expressions in this "super" method invocation expression.

Returns:
the live list of argument expressions (element type: Expression)

resolveMethodBinding

public 
IMethodBinding resolveMethodBinding()
Resolves and returns the binding for the method invoked by this expression.

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

Returns:
the method binding, or null if the binding cannot be resolved
Since:
2.1
