Interface DeclaredType

  • All Superinterfaces:
    AnnotatedConstruct, ReferenceType, TypeMirror
    All Known Subinterfaces:

    public interface DeclaredType
    extends ReferenceType
    Represents a declared type, either a class type or an interface type. This includes parameterized types such as java.util.Set<String> as well as raw types.

    While a TypeElement represents a class or interface element, a DeclaredType represents a class or interface type, the latter being a use (or invocation) of the former. See TypeElement for more on this distinction.

    The supertypes (both class and interface types) of a declared type may be found using the Types.directSupertypes(TypeMirror) method. This returns the supertypes with any type arguments substituted in.

      • getTypeArguments

        List<? extends TypeMirror> getTypeArguments()
        Returns the actual type arguments of this type. For a type nested within a parameterized type (such as Outer<String>.Inner<Number>), only the type arguments of the innermost type are included.
