[Java] Class ClassNodeResolver

java.lang.Object
  org.codehaus.groovy.control.ClassNodeResolver

public class ClassNodeResolver
extends Object

This class is used as a plugable way to resolve class names. An instance of this class has to be added to CompilationUnit using CompilationUnit.setClassNodeResolver. The CompilationUnit will then set the resolver on the ResolveVisitor each time new. The ResolveVisitor will prepare name lookup and then finally ask the resolver if the class exists. This resolver then can return either a SourceUnit or a ClassNode. In case of a SourceUnit the compiler is notified that a new source is to be added to the compilation queue. In case of a ClassNode no further action than the resolving is done. The lookup result is stored in the helper class LookupResult. This class provides a class cache to cache lookups. If you don't want this, you have to override the methods ClassNodeResolver.cacheClass and ClassNodeResolver.getFromClassCache. Custom lookup logic is supposed to go into the method ClassNodeResolver.findClassNode while the entry method is ClassNodeResolver.resolveName

Field Detail

NO_CLASS

protected static final ClassNode NO_CLASS
Internal helper used to indicate a cache hit for a class that does not exist. This way further lookups through a slow findClassNode(String, CompilationUnit) path can be avoided. WARNING: This class is not to be used outside of ClassNodeResolver.


 
Method Detail

cacheClass

public void cacheClass(String name, ClassNode res)
caches a ClassNode
Parameters:
name - - the name of the class
res - - the ClassNode for that name


findClassNode

public ClassNodeResolver.LookupResult findClassNode(String name, CompilationUnit compilationUnit)
Extension point for custom lookup logic of finding ClassNodes. Per default this will use the CompilationUnit class loader to do a lookup on the class path and load the needed class using that loader. Or if a script is found and that script is seen as "newer", the script will be used instead of the class.
Parameters:
name - - the name of the class
compilationUnit - - the current compilation unit
Returns:
the lookup result


getFromClassCache

public ClassNode getFromClassCache(String name)
returns whatever is stored in the class cache for the given name
Parameters:
name - - the name of the class
Returns:
the result of the lookup, which may be null


resolveName

public ClassNodeResolver.LookupResult resolveName(String name, CompilationUnit compilationUnit)
Resolves the name of a class to a SourceUnit or ClassNode. If no class or source is found this method returns null. A lookup is done by first asking the cache if there is an entry for the class already available to then call findClassNode(String, CompilationUnit). The result of that method call will be cached if a ClassNode is found. If a SourceUnit is found, this method will not be asked later on again for that class, because ResolveVisitor will first ask the CompilationUnit for classes in the compilation queue and it will find the class for that SourceUnit there then. method return a ClassNode instead of a SourceUnit, the res
Parameters:
name - - the name of the class
compilationUnit - - the current CompilationUnit
Returns:
the LookupResult
