Class ArrayType

    • Method Detail

      • withContentType

        public JavaType withContentType​(JavaType contentType)
        Description copied from class: JavaType
        Mutant factory method that may be called on structured types that have a so-called content type (element of arrays, value type of Maps, referenced type of referential types), and will construct a new instance that is identical to this instance, except that it has specified content type, instead of current one. If content type is already set to given type, this is returned. If type does not have a content type (which is the case with SimpleType), IllegalArgumentException will be thrown.
        Specified by:
        withContentType in class JavaType
        Returns:
        Newly created type instance
      • withTypeHandler

        public ArrayType withTypeHandler​(Object h)
        Description copied from class: JavaType
        "Copy method" that will construct a new instance that is identical to this instance, except that it will have specified type handler assigned.
        Specified by:
        withTypeHandler in class JavaType
        Returns:
        Newly created type instance
      • withContentTypeHandler

        public ArrayType withContentTypeHandler​(Object h)
        Description copied from class: JavaType
        Mutant factory method that will construct a new instance that is identical to this instance, except that it will have specified content type (element type for arrays, value type for Maps and so forth) handler assigned.
        Specified by:
        withContentTypeHandler in class JavaType
        Returns:
        Newly created type instance, with given
      • withValueHandler

        public ArrayType withValueHandler​(Object h)
        Description copied from class: JavaType
        Mutant factory method that will construct a new instance that is identical to this instance, except that it will have specified value handler assigned.
        Specified by:
        withValueHandler in class JavaType
        Returns:
        Newly created type instance
      • withContentValueHandler

        public ArrayType withContentValueHandler​(Object h)
        Description copied from class: JavaType
        Mutant factory method that will construct a new instance that is identical to this instance, except that it will have specified content value handler assigned.
        Specified by:
        withContentValueHandler in class JavaType
        Returns:
        Newly created type instance
      • withStaticTyping

        public ArrayType withStaticTyping()
        Description copied from class: JavaType
        Method that can be called to get a type instance that indicates that values of the type should be handled using "static typing" for purposes of serialization (as opposed to "dynamic" aka runtime typing): meaning that no runtime information is needed for determining serializers to use. The main use case is to allow forcing of specific root value serialization type, and specifically in resolving serializers for contained types (element types for arrays, Collections and Maps).

      • refine

        public JavaType refine​(Class<?> contentClass,
                               TypeBindings bindings,
                               JavaType superClass,
                               JavaType[] superInterfaces)
        Description copied from class: JavaType
        Mutant factory method that will try to create and return a sub-type instance for known parameterized types; for other types will return `null` to indicate that no just refinement makes necessary sense, without trying to detect special status through implemented interfaces.

      • isAbstract

        public boolean isAbstract()
        For some odd reason, modifiers for array classes would claim they are abstract types. Not so, at least for our purposes.
        Overrides:
        isAbstract in class JavaType
      • isConcrete

        public boolean isConcrete()
        For some odd reason, modifiers for array classes would claim they are abstract types. Not so, at least for our purposes.
        Overrides:
        isConcrete in class JavaType
      • hasGenericTypes

        public boolean hasGenericTypes()
        Description copied from class: ResolvedType
        Method that can be used to find out if the type directly declares generic parameters (for its direct super-class and/or super-interfaces).
        Overrides:
        hasGenericTypes in class JavaType
      • isContainerType

        public boolean isContainerType()
        Specified by:
        isContainerType in class JavaType
        Returns:
        True if type represented is a container type; this includes array, Map and Collection types.
      • getContentType

        public JavaType getContentType()
        Description copied from class: ResolvedType
        Method for accessing content type of this type, if type has such a thing: simple types do not, structured types do (like arrays, Collections and Maps)
        Overrides:
        getContentType in class JavaType
      • getGenericSignature

        public StringBuilder getGenericSignature​(StringBuilder sb)
        Specified by:
        getGenericSignature in class TypeBase
        Parameters:
        sb - StringBuilder to append signature to
        Returns:
        StringBuilder that was passed in; returned to allow call chaining
      • getErasedSignature

        public StringBuilder getErasedSignature​(StringBuilder sb)
        Description copied from class: JavaType
        Method for accessing signature without generic type information, in form compatible with all versions of JVM, and specifically used for type descriptions when generating byte code.
        Specified by:
        getErasedSignature in class TypeBase
        Parameters:
        sb - StringBuilder to append signature to
        Returns:
        StringBuilder that was passed in; returned to allow call chaining
