Eclipse JDT
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jdt.core
Interface ITypeParameter

All Superinterfaces:
IAdaptable, IJavaElement, ISourceReference

public interface ITypeParameter
extends IJavaElement, ISourceReference

Represents a type parameter defined by a type or a method in a compilation unit or a class file.

Type parameters are obtained using IType.getTypeParameter(String) and IMethod.getTypeParameter(String).

Note that type parameters are not children of their declaring type or method. To get a list of the type parameters use IType.getTypeParameters() for a type and use IMethod.getTypeParameters() for a method.

Since:
3.1
Restriction:
This interface is not intended to be implemented by clients.

Method Detail

getBounds

String[] getBounds()
                   throws 
JavaModelException
Returns the names of the class and interface bounds of this type parameter. Returns an empty array if this type parameter has no bounds. A bound name is the name as it appears in the source (without the extends keyword) if the type parameter comes from a compilation unit. It is the dot-separated fully qualified name of the bound if the type parameter comes from a class file.

Returns:
the names of the bounds
Throws:
JavaModelException - if this element does not exist or if an exception occurs while accessing its corresponding resource

getDeclaringMember

IMember getDeclaringMember()
Returns the declaring member of this type parameter. This can be either an IType or an IMethod.

This is a handle-only method.

Returns:
the declaring member of this type parameter.

getNameRange

ISourceRange getNameRange()
                          throws 
JavaModelException
Returns the source range of this type parameter's name, or null if this type parameter does not have associated source code (for example, in a binary type).

Returns:
the source range of this type parameter's name, or null if this type parameter does not have associated source code (for example, in a binary type)
Throws:
JavaModelException - if this element does not exist or if an exception occurs while accessing its corresponding resource.
