Enum Class Diagnostic.Kind

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<Diagnostic.Kind>, Constable
Enclosing interface:

public static enum Diagnostic.Kind extends Enum<Diagnostic.Kind>
Kinds of diagnostics, for example, error or warning. The kind of a diagnostic can be used to determine how the diagnostic should be presented to the user. For example, errors might be colored red or prefixed with the word "Error", while warnings might be colored yellow or prefixed with the word "Warning". There is no requirement that the Kind should imply any inherent semantic meaning to the message of the diagnostic: for example, a tool might provide an option to report all warnings as errors.

    • ERROR

      public static final Diagnostic.Kind ERROR
      Problem which prevents the tool's normal completion.

      public static final Diagnostic.Kind WARNING
      Problem which does not usually prevent the tool from completing normally.

      public static final Diagnostic.Kind MANDATORY_WARNING
      Problem similar to a warning, but is mandated by the tool's specification. For example, the Java Language Specification mandates warnings on certain unchecked operations and the use of deprecated methods.
    • NOTE

      public static final Diagnostic.Kind NOTE
      Informative message from the tool.
    • OTHER

      public static final Diagnostic.Kind OTHER
      Diagnostic which does not fit within the other kinds.
  • Method Details

    • values

      public static Diagnostic.Kind[] values()

    • valueOf

      public static Diagnostic.Kind valueOf(String name)
