Field Detail

M_FORMAT_NEW

public static final int M_FORMAT_NEW
This mode is used for formatting new code when some formatter options should not be used. In particular, options that preserve the indentation of comments are not used. In the future, newly added options may be ignored as well.

Clients that are formatting new code are recommended to use this mode.

Since:
3.3
See Also:
DefaultCodeFormatterConstants.FORMATTER_NEVER_INDENT_BLOCK_COMMENTS_ON_FIRST_COLUMN, DefaultCodeFormatterConstants.FORMATTER_NEVER_INDENT_LINE_COMMENTS_ON_FIRST_COLUMN, createCodeFormatter(Map, int)

M_FORMAT_EXISTING

public static final int M_FORMAT_EXISTING
This mode is used for formatting existing code when all formatter options should be used. In particular, options that preserve the indentation of comments are used.

Clients that are formatting existing code are recommended to use this mode.

Since:
3.3

Constructor Detail

ToolFactory

public ToolFactory()
Method Detail

createCodeFormatter

public static 
ICodeFormatter createCodeFormatter()
Deprecated. Use createCodeFormatter(Map) instead. Extension point is discontinued

Create an instance of a code formatter. A code formatter implementation can be contributed via the extension point "org.eclipse.jdt.core.codeFormatter". If unable to find a registered extension, the factory will default to using the default code formatter.

Returns:
an instance of a code formatter
See Also:
ICodeFormatter, createDefaultCodeFormatter(Map)

createCodeFormatter

public static 
CodeFormatter createCodeFormatter(
Map options)
Create an instance of the built-in code formatter.

The given options should at least provide the source level ( JavaCore.COMPILER_SOURCE), the compiler compliance level ( JavaCore.COMPILER_COMPLIANCE) and the target platform ( JavaCore.COMPILER_CODEGEN_TARGET_PLATFORM). Without these options, it is not possible for the code formatter to know what kind of source it needs to format.

Note this is equivalent to createCodeFormatter(options, M_FORMAT_NEW). Thus some code formatter options may be ignored. See @{link M_FORMAT_NEW for more details.

Parameters:
options - - the options map to use for formatting with the default code formatter. Recognized options are documented on JavaCore#getDefaultOptions(). If set to null, then use the current settings from JavaCore#getOptions.
Returns:
an instance of the built-in code formatter
Since:
3.0
See Also:
CodeFormatter, JavaCore.getOptions()

createCodeFormatter

public static 
CodeFormatter createCodeFormatter(
Map options,
                                                int mode)
Create an instance of the built-in code formatter.

The given options should at least provide the source level ( JavaCore.COMPILER_SOURCE), the compiler compliance level ( JavaCore.COMPILER_COMPLIANCE) and the target platform ( JavaCore.COMPILER_CODEGEN_TARGET_PLATFORM). Without these options, it is not possible for the code formatter to know what kind of source it needs to format.

The given mode determines what options should be enabled when formatting the code. It can have the following values: M_FORMAT_NEW, M_FORMAT_EXISTING, but other values may be added in the future.

Parameters:
options - the options map to use for formatting with the default code formatter. Recognized options are documented on JavaCore#getDefaultOptions(). If set to null, then use the current settings from JavaCore#getOptions.
mode - the given mode to modify the given options.
Returns:
an instance of the built-in code formatter
Since:
3.3

createScanner

public static 
IScanner createScanner(boolean tokenizeComments,
                                     boolean tokenizeWhiteSpace,
                                     boolean assertMode,
                                     boolean recordLineSeparator)
Create a scanner, indicating the level of detail requested for tokenizing. The scanner can then be used to tokenize some source in a Java aware way. Here is a typical scanning loop:
   IScanner scanner = ToolFactory.createScanner(false, false, false, false);
   scanner.setSource("int i = 0;".toCharArray());
   while (true) {
     int token = scanner.getNextToken();
     if (token == ITerminalSymbols.TokenNameEOF) break;
     System.out.println(token + " : " + new String(scanner.getCurrentTokenSource()));
   }
 

The returned scanner will tolerate unterminated line comments (missing line separator). It can be made stricter by using API with extra boolean parameter (strictCommentMode).

Parameters:
tokenizeComments - if set to false, comments will be silently consumed
tokenizeWhiteSpace - if set to false, white spaces will be silently consumed,
assertMode - if set to false, occurrences of 'assert' will be reported as identifiers (ITerminalSymbols#TokenNameIdentifier), whereas if set to true, it would report assert keywords (ITerminalSymbols#TokenNameassert). Java 1.4 has introduced a new 'assert' keyword.
recordLineSeparator - if set to true, the scanner will record positions of encountered line separator ends. In case of multi-character line separators, the last character position is considered. These positions can then be extracted using IScanner#getLineEnds. Only non-unicode escape sequences are considered as valid line separators.
Returns:
a scanner

createScanner

public static 
IScanner createScanner(boolean tokenizeComments,
                                     boolean tokenizeWhiteSpace,
                                     boolean recordLineSeparator,
                                     
String sourceLevel)
Create a scanner, indicating the level of detail requested for tokenizing. The scanner can then be used to tokenize some source in a Java aware way. Here is a typical scanning loop:
   IScanner scanner = ToolFactory.createScanner(false, false, false, false);
   scanner.setSource("int i = 0;".toCharArray());
   while (true) {
     int token = scanner.getNextToken();
     if (token == ITerminalSymbols.TokenNameEOF) break;
     System.out.println(token + " : " + new String(scanner.getCurrentTokenSource()));
   }
 

The returned scanner will tolerate unterminated line comments (missing line separator). It can be made stricter by using API with extra boolean parameter (strictCommentMode).

Parameters:
tokenizeComments - if set to false, comments will be silently consumed
tokenizeWhiteSpace - if set to false, white spaces will be silently consumed,
recordLineSeparator - if set to true, the scanner will record positions of encountered line separator ends. In case of multi-character line separators, the last character position is considered. These positions can then be extracted using IScanner#getLineEnds. Only non-unicode escape sequences are considered as valid line separators.
sourceLevel - if set to "1.3" or null, occurrences of 'assert' will be reported as identifiers (ITerminalSymbols#TokenNameIdentifier), whereas if set to "1.4", it would report assert keywords (ITerminalSymbols#TokenNameassert). Java 1.4 has introduced a new 'assert' keyword.
