Interface ExecutableType

All Superinterfaces:
TypeMirror

public interface ExecutableType
extends TypeMirror

Represents the type of an executable. An executable is a method, constructor, or initializer.

The executable is represented as when viewed as a method (or constructor or initializer) of some reference type. If that reference type is parameterized, then its actual type arguments are substituted into any types returned by the methods of this interface.
