Package spoon.reflect

package spoon.reflect

This package defines the Spoon's compile-time meta-model of Java programs.

The meta-model defines a read/write compile-time meta-representation of Java 5 programs. The programmers should instantiate or resolve the meta-elements by using Factory's sub-factories because it ensures the model consistency. The CoreFactory is the raw factory for program elements and is the only factory to be implemented when wanting to provide an alternative implementation of the Spoon meta-model.

  • Interface Summary
    represents a Java program, modeled by a set of compile-time (Ct) objects where each object is a program element (for instance, a CtClass represents a class).
    This interface defines the protocol to save and load a factory and it's associated model through output and input streams.
  • Class Summary
    Recommended default capacities for containers (primarily ArrayList) of AST model elements.
