Eclipse JDT
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jdt.core
Class Flags

java.lang.Object
  extended by 
org.eclipse.jdt.core.Flags

public final class Flags
extends Object

Utility class for decoding modifier flags in Java elements.

This class provides static methods only.

Note that the numeric values of these flags match the ones for class files as described in the Java Virtual Machine Specification. The AST class Modifier provides the same functionality as this class, only in the org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom package.

See Also:
IMember.getFlags()
Restriction:
This class is not intended to be instantiated by clients.

toString

public static 
String toString(int flags)
Returns a standard string describing the given modifier flags. Only modifier flags are included in the output; deprecated, synthetic, bridge, etc. flags are ignored.

The flags are output in the following order:

   public protected private
   static
   abstract final native synchronized transient volatile strictfp
 
This is a compromise between the orders specified in sections 8.1.1, 8.3.1, 8.4.3, 8.8.3, 9.1.1, and 9.3 of The Java Language Specification, Second Edition (JLS2).

Note that the flags of a method can include the AccVarargs flag that has no standard description. Since the AccVarargs flag has the same value as the AccTransient flag (valid for fields only), attempting to get the description of method modifiers with the AccVarargs flag set would result in an unexpected description. Clients should ensure that the AccVarargs is not included in the flags of a method as follows:

 IMethod method = ...
 int flags = method.getFlags() & ~Flags.AccVarargs;
 return Flags.toString(flags);
 

Examples results:

          "public static final"
          "private native"
 

Parameters:
flags - the flags
Returns:
the standard string representation of the given flags
