Eclipse JDT
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jdt.core.search
Class SearchMatch

java.lang.Object
  extended by 
org.eclipse.jdt.core.search.SearchMatch
Direct Known Subclasses:
FieldDeclarationMatch, LocalVariableDeclarationMatch, LocalVariableReferenceMatch, MethodDeclarationMatch, PackageDeclarationMatch, ReferenceMatch, TypeDeclarationMatch, TypeParameterDeclarationMatch, TypeParameterReferenceMatch

public class SearchMatch
extends Object

A search match represents the result of a search query. Search matches may be accurate (A_ACCURATE) or they might be merely potential matches (A_INACCURATE). The latter occurs when a compile-time problem prevents the search engine from completely resolving the match.

This class is intended to be instantiated and subclassed by clients.

Since:
3.0
See Also:
SearchEngine.search(SearchPattern, SearchParticipant[], IJavaSearchScope, SearchRequestor, org.eclipse.core.runtime.IProgressMonitor)

Field Summary
static int A_ACCURATE
          The search result corresponds an exact match of the search pattern.
static int A_INACCURATE
          The search result is potentially a match for the search pattern, but the search engine is unable to fully check it (for example, because there are errors in the code or the classpath are not correctly set).
 
Constructor Summary
SearchMatch ( IJavaElement element, int accuracy, int offset, int length, SearchParticipant participant, IResource resource)
          Creates a new search match.

          Returns the search participant which issued this search match.
  IResource getResource ()
          Returns the resource containing this search match.
 int getRule ()
          Returns the rule used while creating the match.
 boolean isEquivalent ()
          Returns whether match element is compatible with searched pattern or not.
 boolean isErasure ()
          Returns whether match element only has same erasure than searched pattern or not.
 boolean isExact ()
          Returns whether element matches exactly searched pattern or not.
 boolean isImplicit ()
          Returns whether the associated element is implicit or not.
 boolean isInsideDocComment ()
          Returns whether this search match is inside a doc comment of a Java source file.

 void setElement ( Object element)
          Sets the element of this search match.
 void setImplicit (boolean implicit)
          Sets whether the associated element is implicit or not.
 void setInsideDocComment (boolean insideDoc)

Field Detail

A_ACCURATE

public static final int A_ACCURATE
The search result corresponds an exact match of the search pattern.

See Also:
getAccuracy(), Constant Field Values

A_INACCURATE

public static final int A_INACCURATE
The search result is potentially a match for the search pattern, but the search engine is unable to fully check it (for example, because there are errors in the code or the classpath are not correctly set).

See Also:
getAccuracy(), Constant Field Values
Constructor Detail

SearchMatch

public SearchMatch(
IJavaElement element,
                   int accuracy,
                   int offset,
                   int length,
                   
SearchParticipant participant,
                   
IResource resource)
Creates a new search match.

Note that isInsideDocComment() defaults to false.

Parameters:
element - the element that encloses or corresponds to the match, or null if none
accuracy - one of A_ACCURATE or A_INACCURATE
offset - the offset the match starts at, or -1 if unknown
length - the length of the match, or -1 if unknown
participant - the search participant that created the match
resource - the resource of the element, or null if none
Method Detail

getAccuracy

public final int getAccuracy()
Returns the accuracy of this search match.

Returns:
one of A_ACCURATE or A_INACCURATE

getElement

public final 
Object getElement()
Returns the element of this search match. In case of a reference match, this is the inner-most enclosing element of the reference. In case of a declaration match, this is the declaration.

Returns:
the element of the search match, or null if none

getLength

public final int getLength()
Returns the length of this search match.

Returns:
the length of this search match, or -1 if unknown

getOffset

public final int getOffset()
Returns the offset of this search match.

Returns:
the offset of this search match, or -1 if unknown

getParticipant

public final 
SearchParticipant getParticipant()
Returns the search participant which issued this search match.

Returns:
the participant which issued this search match

getResource

public final 
IResource getResource()
Returns the resource containing this search match.

Returns:
the resource of the match, or null if none

getRule

public final int getRule()
Returns the rule used while creating the match.

Returns:
one of SearchPattern.R_FULL_MATCH, SearchPattern.R_EQUIVALENT_MATCH or SearchPattern.R_ERASURE_MATCH
Since:
3.1

isEquivalent

public final boolean isEquivalent()
Returns whether match element is compatible with searched pattern or not. Note that equivalent matches are also erasure ones.

Returns:
true if match element is compatible false otherwise
Since:
3.1

isErasure

public final boolean isErasure()
Returns whether match element only has same erasure than searched pattern or not. Note that this is always true for both generic and non-generic element as soon as the accuracy is accurate.

Returns:
true if match element has same erasure false otherwise
Since:
3.1

isExact

public final boolean isExact()
Returns whether element matches exactly searched pattern or not. Note that exact matches are also erasure and equivalent ones.

Returns:
true if match is exact false otherwise
Since:
3.1

isImplicit

public final boolean isImplicit()
Returns whether the associated element is implicit or not. Note that this piece of information is currently only implemented for implicit member pair value in annotation.

Returns:
true if this match is associated to an implicit element and false otherwise
Since:
3.1

isRaw

public final boolean isRaw()
Returns whether the associated element is a raw type/method or not.

Returns:
true if this match is associated to a raw type or method and false otherwise
Since:
3.1

isInsideDocComment

public final boolean isInsideDocComment()
Returns whether this search match is inside a doc comment of a Java source file.
