Eclipse JDT
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jdt.core.jdom
Interface IDOMMethod

All Superinterfaces:
Cloneable, IDOMMember, IDOMNode

Deprecated. The JDOM was made obsolete by the addition in 2.0 of the more powerful, fine-grained DOM/AST API found in the org.eclipse.jdt.core.dom package.

public interface IDOMMethod
extends IDOMMember

Represents a method declaration. The corresponding syntactic units are MethodDeclaration (JLS2 8.4), ConstructorDeclaration (JLS2 8.8), and AbstractMethodDeclaration (JLS2 9.4). A method has no children and its parent is a type. Local classes are considered to be part of the body of a method, not a child. Annotation type members, added in J2SE 1.5, are represented as methods.

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

void addException(
String exceptionType)
                  throws 
IllegalArgumentException
Deprecated. 
Adds the given exception to the end of the list of exceptions this method is declared to throw. The syntax for an exception type name is defined by Method Throws (JLS2 8.4.4). Type names must be specified as they would appear in source code. For example: "IOException" or "java.io.IOException". This is a convenience method for setExceptions.

Parameters:
exceptionType - the exception type
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if null is specified
See Also:
setExceptions(String[])

addParameter

void addParameter(
String type,
                  
String name)
                  throws 
IllegalArgumentException
Deprecated. 
Adds the given parameter to the end of the parameter list. This is a convenience method for setParameters. The syntax for parameter names is defined by Formal Parameters (JLS2 8.4.1). The syntax for type names is defined by Formal Parameters (JLS2 8.4.1). Type names must be specified as they would appear in source code. For example: "File", "java.io.File", or "int[]".

Parameters:
type - the type name
name - the parameter name
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if null is specified for either the type or the name
See Also:
setParameters(String[], String[])

getBody

String getBody()
Deprecated. 
Returns the body of this method. The method body includes all code following the method declaration, including the enclosing braces.

Returns:
the body, or null if the method has no body (for example, for an abstract or native method)

setDefault

void setDefault(
String defaultValue)
Deprecated. 
Sets the default value expression for an annotation type member.

Parameters:
defaultValue - the default value expression, or null indicating the member does not have a default value
Since:
3.0

getDefault

String getDefault()
Deprecated. 
Returns the default value expression for an annotation type member.

Returns:
the default value expression, or null indicating the member does not have a default value
Since:
3.0

getExceptions

String[] getExceptions()
Deprecated. 
Returns the names of the exception types this method throws in the order in which they are declared in the source, or an empty array if this method declares no exception types. The syntax for an exception type name is defined by Method Throws (JLS2 8.4.4). Type names appear as they would in source code. For example: "IOException" or "java.io.IOException".

Returns:
the list of exception types

getTypeParameters

String[] getTypeParameters()
Deprecated. 
Returns the formal type parameters for this method. Returns an empty array if this method has no formal type parameters.

Formal type parameters are as they appear in the source code; for example: "X extends List<String> & Serializable".

Returns:
the formal type parameters of this method, in the order declared in the source, an empty array if none
Since:
3.0

getName

String getName()
Deprecated. 
The IDOMMethod refinement of this IDOMNode method returns the name of this method. Returns null for constructors. The syntax for a method name is defined by Identifier of MethodDeclarator (JLS2 8.4).

Specified by:
getName in interface IDOMNode
Returns:
the name of this method or null for constructors
