Method Detail

getSignature

String getSignature()
                    throws 
DebugException
Returns the JNI-style signature for the declared type of this variable, or null if the type associated with the signature is not yet loaded in the target VM.

Returns:
signature, or null if not accessible
Throws:
DebugException - if this method fails. Reasons include:
  • Failure communicating with the VM. The DebugException's status code contains the underlying exception responsible for the failure.
  • The type associated with the signature is not yet loaded

getGenericSignature

String getGenericSignature()
                           throws 
DebugException
Returns the generic signature as defined in the JVM specification for the declared type of this variable, or null if the type associated with the signature is not yet loaded in the target VM. Returns the same value as #getSignature() if the declared type of this variable is not a generic type.

Returns:
generic signature, or null if not accessible
Throws:
DebugException - if this method fails. Reasons include:
  • Failure communicating with the VM. The DebugException's status code contains the underlying exception responsible for the failure.
  • The type associated with the signature is not yet loaded
Since:
3.1

getJavaType

IJavaType getJavaType()
                      throws 
DebugException
Returns the declared type of this variable.

Returns:
the declared type of this variable
Throws:
DebugException - if this method fails. Reasons include:
  • Failure communicating with the VM. The DebugException's status code contains the underlying exception responsible for the failure.
  • The type associated with the signature is not yet loaded
Since:
2.0

isLocal

boolean isLocal()
                throws 
DebugException
Returns whether this variable is local.

Returns:
whether this variable is a local variable
Throws:
DebugException - if this method fails. Reasons include:
  • Failure communicating with the VM. The DebugException's status code contains the underlying exception responsible for the failure.
Since:
2.1
