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.
InterfaceDescriptionrepresents 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.
