  • Method Details

    • getReference

      CtExecutableReference<R> getReference()
      Description copied from interface: CtNamedElement
      Returns the corresponding reference.
      Specified by:
      getReference in interface CtNamedElement
    • getBody

      CtBlock<R> getBody()
      Gets the body expression.
      Specified by:
      getBody in interface CtBodyHolder
    • getParameters

      List<CtParameter<?>> getParameters()
      Gets the parameters list.
    • setParameters

      <T extends CtExecutable<R>> T setParameters(List<CtParameter<?>> parameters)
      Sets the parameters.
    • addParameter

      <T extends CtExecutable<R>> T addParameter(CtParameter<?> parameter)
      Add a parameter for this executable
      parameter -
      true if this element changed as a result of the call
    • addParameterAt

      <T extends CtExecutable<R>> T addParameterAt(int position, CtParameter<?> parameter)
      Add a parameter at a specific position in the executable.
      position - index where the `parameter` needs to be inserted
      parameter - parameter to be inserted
      an object or sub-type of CtExecutable
    • removeParameter

      boolean removeParameter(CtParameter<?> parameter)
      Remove a parameter for this executable
      parameter -
      true if this element changed as a result of the call
    • getThrownTypes

      Set<CtTypeReference<? extends Throwable>> getThrownTypes()
      Returns the exceptions and other throwables listed in this method or constructor's throws clause.
    • setThrownTypes

      <T extends CtExecutable<R>> T setThrownTypes(Set<CtTypeReference<? extends Throwable>> thrownTypes)
      Sets the thrown types.
    • addThrownType

      <T extends CtExecutable<R>> T addThrownType(CtTypeReference<? extends Throwable> throwType)
      add a thrown type.
      throwType -
      true if this element changed as a result of the call
    • removeThrownType

      boolean removeThrownType(CtTypeReference<? extends Throwable> throwType)
      remove a thrown type.
      throwType -
      true if this element changed as a result of the call
    • getSignature

      String getSignature()
      Gets the signature of this exectuable. The signature is composed of the method name and the parameter types, all fully-qualified, eg "foo(java.lang.String)". The core contract is that in a type, there cannot be two methods with the same signature.

      Note that the concept of method signature in Java is not well defined (see chapter "8.4.2 Method Signature" of the Java specification, which defines what relations between signatures but not what a signature is exactly).

      Note also that the signature of a method reference is the same as the signature of the corresponding method if and only if the method parameters does not involve generics in their types. Otherwise, one has eg m(String) (reference) and m(T) (declaration)

      Reference: "In the Java programming language, a method signature is the method name and the number and type of its parameters. Return types and thrown exceptions are not considered to be a part of the method signature."

    • clone

      CtExecutable<R> clone()
      Description copied from interface: CtElement
      Clone the element which calls this method in a new object. Note that that references are kept as is, and thus, so if you clone whole classes or methods, some parts of the cloned element (eg executable references) may still point to the initial element. In this case, consider using methods Refactoring.copyType(CtType) and Refactoring.copyMethod(CtMethod) instead which does additional work beyond cloning.
