Method Detail

alignGenericTypes

public static GenericsType[] alignGenericTypes(GenericsType[] redirectGenericTypes, GenericsType[] parameterizedTypes, GenericsType[] alignmentTarget)
Given a parameterized type and a generic type information, aligns actual type parameters. For example, if a class uses generic type
<T,U,V>
(redirectGenericTypes), is used with actual type parameters
<java.lang.String, U,V>
, then a class or interface using generic types
<T,V>
will be aligned to
<java.lang.String,V>
Parameters:
redirectGenericTypes - the type arguments or the redirect class node
parameterizedTypes - the actual type arguments used on this class node
alignmentTarget - the generic type arguments to which we want to align to
Returns:
aligned type arguments


buildWildcardType

public static GenericsType buildWildcardType(ClassNode... types)
Generates a wildcard generic type in order to be used for checks against class nodes. See GenericsType#isCompatibleWith(org.codehaus.groovy.ast.ClassNode).
Parameters:
types - the type to be used as the wildcard upper bound
Returns:
a wildcard generics type


extractPlaceholders

public static Map extractPlaceholders(ClassNode cn)


extractPlaceholders

public static void extractPlaceholders(ClassNode node, Map map)
For a given classnode, fills in the supplied map with the parameterized types it defines.
Parameters:
node
map


parameterizeInterfaceGenerics

public static ClassNode parameterizeInterfaceGenerics(ClassNode hint, ClassNode target)
Interface class nodes retrieved from ClassNode.getInterfaces or ClassNode.getAllInterfaces are returned with generic type arguments. This method allows returning a parameterized interface given the parameterized class node which implements this interface.
deprecated:
Use #parameterizeType instead
Parameters:
hint - the class node where generics types are parameterized
target - the interface we want to parameterize generics types
Returns:
a parameterized interface class node


parameterizeType

public static ClassNode parameterizeType(ClassNode hint, ClassNode target)
Interface class nodes retrieved from ClassNode.getInterfaces or ClassNode.getAllInterfaces are returned with generic type arguments. This method allows returning a parameterized interface given the parameterized class node which implements this interface.
Parameters:
hint - the class node where generics types are parameterized
target - the interface we want to parameterize generics types
Returns:
a parameterized interface class node
