public abstract class TypeModifier extends ObjectClass that defines API that can be used to modify details of
JavaTypeinstances constructed using
TypeFactory. Registered modifiers are called in order, to let them modify (or replace) basic type instance factory constructs. This is typically needed to support creation of
CollectionLikeTypeinstances, as those cannot be constructed in generic fashion.

public abstract JavaType modifyType(JavaType type, Type jdkType, TypeBindings context, TypeFactory typeFactory)Method called to let modifier change constructed type definition. Note that this is only guaranteed to be called for non-container types ("simple" types not recognized as arrays,
type- Instance to modify
jdkType- JDK type that was used to construct instance to modify
context- Type resolution context used for the type
typeFactory- Type factory that can be used to construct parameter type; note, however, that care must be taken to avoid infinite loops -- specifically, do not construct instance of primary type itself
- Actual type instance to use; usually either
type(as is or with modifications), or a newly constructed type instance based on it. Cannot be null.
