Eclipse JDT
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jdt.core
Interface IMemberValuePair


public interface IMemberValuePair

Represents a member-value pair of an annotation. The value is represented by an Object . To get the exact type of this object, use its value kind. If this value is an array, getValue() returns an instance of Object [] and the value kind returns the kind of the elements in this array.

This interface is not intended to be implemented or extended by clients.

Since:
3.4

See Also:
Constant Field Values

K_STRING

static final int K_STRING
Constant indicating that the value kind is a String represented by the corresponding String .

Constant Field Values

K_ANNOTATION

static final int K_ANNOTATION
Constant indicating that the value kind is an annotation represented by an instance of IAnnotation.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

K_CLASS

static final int K_CLASS
Constant indicating that the value kind is a Class represented by the name of the class (i.e. a String . If the member-value pair is coming from a compilation unit, this is either a simple name (e.g. for MyType.class, the name is "MyType"), or a qualified name (e.g. for x.y.MyType.MyNestedType.class, the name is "x.y.MyType.MyNestedType"). If the member-value pair is coming from a class file, this is always a fully qualified name.

Note that one can use IType.resolveType(String) and e.g. IJavaProject.findType(String, String, org.eclipse.core.runtime.IProgressMonitor) to find the corresponding IType.

Constant Field Values

K_QUALIFIED_NAME

static final int K_QUALIFIED_NAME
Constant indicating that the value is a qualified name represented by a String . The qualified name refers to an enum constant or another compile-time constant if the code is correct (e.g. "MyEnum.FIRST").

See Also:
Constant Field Values

K_SIMPLE_NAME

static final int K_SIMPLE_NAME
Constant indicating that the value is a simple name represented by a String . The simple name refers to an enum constant or another compile-time constant if the code is correct (e.g. "FIRST" when there is a static import for "MyEnum.FIRST").

See Also:
Constant Field Values

K_UNKNOWN

static final int K_UNKNOWN
Constant indicating that the value kind is unknown at this stage. The value is unknown in the following cases:
  • the value is an expression that would need to be further analyzed to determine its kind. For example, in @MyAnnot(1 + 2.3) the kind of the expression "1 + 2.3" is unknown
  • the value is an array of size 0, e.g. @MyAnnot({})
  • the value is an array that contains at least one expression that would need to be further analyzed to determine its kind. For example, in @MyAnnot({3.4, 1 + 2.3}), the kind of the second element "1 + 2.3" is unknown.
  • the value is an array that contains heterogeneous values, e.g. @MyAnnot(1, 2.3, "abc")
If the value kind is unknown, the returned value is always either null, or an array containing Object s and/or nulls for unknown elements.

Method Detail

getMemberName

String getMemberName()
Returns the member's name of this member-value pair.

Returns:
the member's name of this member-value pair.

getValue

Object getValue()
Returns the value of this member-value pair. The type of this value is function of this member-value pair's value kind. It is an instance of Object [] if the value is an array.

If the value kind is K_UNKNOWN and the value is not an array, then the value is null. If the value kind is K_UNKNOWN and the value is an array, then the value is an array containing Object s and/or nulls for unknown elements. See K_UNKNOWN for more details.

Returns:
the value of this member-value pair.

getValueKind

int getValueKind()
Returns the value kind of this member-value pair. This indicates the instance of the returned value, or the instance of the elements if the value is an array. The value kind is one of the following constants: K_ANNOTATION, K_BOOLEAN, K_BYTE, K_CHAR, K_CLASS, K_DOUBLE, K_FLOAT, K_INT, K_LONG, K_QUALIFIED_NAME, K_SIMPLE_NAME, K_SHORT, K_STRING, K_UNKNOWN.

Returns:
the value kind of this member-value pair
