Class AbstractTypeVisitor6<R,​P>

java.lang.Object
javax.lang.model.util.AbstractTypeVisitor6<R,​P>
Type Parameters:
R - the return type of this visitor's methods. Use Void for visitors that do not need to return results.
P - the type of the additional parameter to this visitor's methods. Use Void for visitors that do not need an additional parameter.
All Implemented Interfaces:
TypeVisitor<R,​P>
Direct Known Subclasses:
AbstractTypeVisitor7, SimpleTypeVisitor6

@SupportedSourceVersion(RELEASE_6)
public abstract class AbstractTypeVisitor6<R,​P>
extends Object
implements TypeVisitor<R,​P>
A skeletal visitor of types with default behavior appropriate for the RELEASE_6 source version.
API Note:

WARNING: The TypeVisitor interface implemented by this class may have methods added to it in the future to accommodate new, currently unknown, language structures added to future versions of the Java™ programming language. Therefore, methods whose names begin with "visit" may be added to this class in the future; to avoid incompatibilities, classes and subclasses which extend this class should not declare any instance methods with names beginning with "visit".

When such a new visit method is added, the default implementation in this class will be to directly or indirectly call the visitUnknown method. A new abstract type visitor class will also be introduced to correspond to the new language level; this visitor will have different default behavior for the visit method in question. When a new visitor is introduced, portions of this visitor class may be deprecated, including its constructors.

Since:
1.6

  • Method Details

    • visit

      public final R visit​(TypeMirror t, P p)
      Visits any type mirror as if by passing itself to that type mirror's accept method. The invocation v.visit(t, p) is equivalent to t.accept(v, p).
      Specified by:
      visit in interface TypeVisitor<R,​P>
      Parameters:
      t - the type to visit
      p - a visitor-specified parameter
      Returns:
      a visitor-specified result
    • visit

      public final R visit​(TypeMirror t)
      Visits any type mirror as if by passing itself to that type mirror's accept method and passing null for the additional parameter. The invocation v.visit(t) is equivalent to t.accept(v, null).
      Specified by:
      visit in interface TypeVisitor<R,​P>
      Parameters:
      t - the type to visit
      Returns:
      a visitor-specified result
    • visitUnion

      public R visitUnion​(UnionType t, P p)
      Visits a union type.
      Specified by:
      visitUnion in interface TypeVisitor<R,​P>
      Implementation Requirements:
      Visits a UnionType element by calling visitUnknown.
      Parameters:
      t - the type to visit
      p - a visitor-specified parameter
      Returns:
      the result of visitUnknown
      Since:
      1.7
    • visitIntersection

      public R visitIntersection​(IntersectionType t, P p)
      Visits an intersection type.
      Specified by:
      visitIntersection in interface TypeVisitor<R,​P>
      Implementation Requirements:
      Visits an IntersectionType element by calling visitUnknown.
      Parameters:
      t - the type to visit
      p - a visitor-specified parameter
      Returns:
      the result of visitUnknown
      Since:
      1.8
    • visitUnknown

      public R visitUnknown​(TypeMirror t, P p)
      Visits an unknown kind of type. This can occur if the language evolves and new kinds of types are added to the TypeMirror hierarchy.
      Specified by:
      visitUnknown in interface TypeVisitor<R,​P>
      Implementation Requirements:
      The default implementation of this method in AbstractTypeVisitor6 will always throw new UnknownTypeException(t, p). This behavior is not required of a subclass.
      Parameters:
      t - the type to visit
      p - a visitor-specified parameter
      Returns:
      a visitor-specified result
      Throws:
      UnknownTypeException - a visitor implementation may optionally throw this exception
