Class SimpleElementVisitor6<R,​P>

java.lang.Object
javax.lang.model.util.AbstractElementVisitor6<R,​P>
javax.lang.model.util.SimpleElementVisitor6<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:
ElementVisitor<R,​P>
Direct Known Subclasses:
ElementKindVisitor6, SimpleElementVisitor7

@SupportedSourceVersion(RELEASE_6)
public class SimpleElementVisitor6<R,​P>
extends AbstractElementVisitor6<R,​P>
A simple visitor of program elements with default behavior appropriate for the RELEASE_6 source version. Visit methods corresponding to RELEASE_6 language constructs call defaultAction, passing their arguments to defaultAction's corresponding parameters. For constructs introduced in RELEASE_7 and later, visitUnknown is called instead.
API Note:
Methods in this class may be overridden subject to their general contract.

WARNING: The ElementVisitor 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 simple element 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.

  • Field Details

    • DEFAULT_VALUE

      protected final R DEFAULT_VALUE
      Default value to be returned; defaultAction returns this value unless the method is overridden.
  • Constructor Details

    • SimpleElementVisitor6

      @Deprecated(since="9") protected SimpleElementVisitor6()
      Deprecated.
      Release 6 is obsolete; update to a visitor for a newer release level.
      Constructor for concrete subclasses; uses null for the default value.
    • SimpleElementVisitor6

      @Deprecated(since="9") protected SimpleElementVisitor6​(R defaultValue)
      Deprecated.
      Release 6 is obsolete; update to a visitor for a newer release level.
      Constructor for concrete subclasses; uses the argument for the default value.
      Parameters:
      defaultValue - the value to assign to DEFAULT_VALUE
  • Method Details

    • defaultAction

      protected R defaultAction​(Element e, P p)
      The default action for visit methods.
      Implementation Requirements:
      The implementation in this class just returns DEFAULT_VALUE; subclasses will commonly override this method.
      Parameters:
      e - the element to process
      p - a visitor-specified parameter
      Returns:
      DEFAULT_VALUE unless overridden
    • visitPackage

      public R visitPackage​(PackageElement e, P p)
      Visits a package element.
      Implementation Requirements:
      This implementation calls defaultAction.
      Parameters:
      e - the element to visit
      p - a visitor-specified parameter
      Returns:
      a visitor-specified result
    • visitType

      public R visitType​(TypeElement e, P p)
      Visits a type element.
      Implementation Requirements:
      This implementation calls defaultAction.
      Parameters:
      e - the element to visit
      p - a visitor-specified parameter
      Returns:
      a visitor-specified result
    • visitVariable

      public R visitVariable​(VariableElement e, P p)
      Visits a variable element.
      Implementation Requirements:
      This implementation calls defaultAction, unless the element is a RESOURCE_VARIABLE in which case visitUnknown is called.
      Parameters:
      e - the element to visit
      p - a visitor-specified parameter
      Returns:
      a visitor-specified result
    • visitExecutable

      public R visitExecutable​(ExecutableElement e, P p)
      Visits an executable element.
      Implementation Requirements:
      This implementation calls defaultAction.
      Parameters:
      e - the element to visit
      p - a visitor-specified parameter
      Returns:
      a visitor-specified result
    • visitTypeParameter

      public R visitTypeParameter​(TypeParameterElement e, P p)
      Visits a type parameter element.
      Implementation Requirements:
      This implementation calls defaultAction.
      Parameters:
      e - the element to visit
      p - a visitor-specified parameter
      Returns:
      a visitor-specified result
