Eclipse JDT
Release 3.5

org.eclipse.jdt.core.util
Interface IClassFileReader


public interface IClassFileReader

Description of a .class file. This class reifies the internal structure of a .class file following the JVM specifications.

Note that several changes were introduced with J2SE 1.5. Class file reader implementations should use support these new class file attributes by returning objects implementing the appropriate specialized attribute interfaces. Class file reader clients can search for these new attributes and downcast to the new interfaces as appropriate.

This interface may be implemented by clients.

Since:
2.0
