Field Detail

NAME_PROPERTY

public static final 
ChildPropertyDescriptor NAME_PROPERTY
The "name" structural property of this node type.


TYPE_BOUNDS_PROPERTY

public static final 
ChildListPropertyDescriptor TYPE_BOUNDS_PROPERTY
The "typeBounds" structural property of this node type.

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)

getName

public 
SimpleName getName()
Returns the name of the type variable declared in this type parameter.

Returns:
the name of the type variable

resolveBinding

public final 
ITypeBinding resolveBinding()
Resolves and returns the binding for this type parameter.

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

setName

public void setName(
SimpleName typeName)
Sets the name of the type variable of this type parameter to the given name.

Parameters:
typeName - the new name of this type parameter
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if:
  • the node belongs to a different AST
  • the node already has a parent

typeBounds

public 
List typeBounds()
Returns the live ordered list of type bounds of this type parameter. For the type parameter to be plausible, there can be at most one class in the list, and it must be first, and the remaining ones must be interfaces; the list should not contain primitive types (but array types and parameterized types are allowed).

Returns:
the live list of type bounds (element type: Type)
