All Superinterfaces:
ExpressionT, OperatorExpressionT, Tree
All Known Subinterfaces:
ArrayAccessExpressionT, DotExpressionT, InvokeExpressionT, MethodCallExpressionT, NewClassExpressionT

public interface DereferenceExpressionT
extends OperatorExpressionT

Common supertype for expressions performing dereference operations. The three dereference expressions are: array access, method call, and dot dereference.

Method Detail

getLhsOperand

ExpressionT getLhsOperand()
Returns:
The lhs operand of this dereference. Null if none. If this is a dot dereference... well, you can figure that one out. If this is an array access, the lhs operand will be the array variable. If this is a method call, the lhs operand is optional. If this is a class creator, the lhs operand is optional. If there is a lhs operand, it means that this is a qualified class creator and the lhs operand is the outer class instance being used.

setLhsOperand

void setLhsOperand(ExpressionT e)
Attempts to set the lhs operand for this expression.

Parameters:
e - If null, then this will remove the lhs operand (legal only for method calls).
Throws:
java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException - if this operation is illegal.
