Uses of Interface
javax.tools.FileObject

Packages that use FileObject
javax.annotation.processing Facilities for declaring annotation processors and for allowing annotation processors to communicate with an annotation processing tool environment. 
javax.tools Provides interfaces for tools which can be invoked from a program, for example, compilers. 
 

Uses of FileObject in javax.annotation.processing
 

Methods in javax.annotation.processing that return FileObject
 FileObject Filer.createResource(JavaFileManager.Location location, CharSequence pkg, CharSequence relativeName, Element... originatingElements)
          Creates a new auxiliary resource file for writing and returns a file object for it.
 FileObject Filer.getResource(JavaFileManager.Location location, CharSequence pkg, CharSequence relativeName)
          Returns an object for reading an existing resource.
 

Uses of FileObject in javax.tools
 

Classes in javax.tools with type parameters of type FileObject
 class ForwardingFileObject<F extends FileObject>
          Forwards calls to a given file object.
 

Subinterfaces of FileObject in javax.tools
 interface JavaFileObject
          File abstraction for tools operating on Java™ programming language source and class files.
 

Classes in javax.tools that implement FileObject
 class ForwardingFileObject<F extends FileObject>
          Forwards calls to a given file object.
 class ForwardingJavaFileObject<F extends JavaFileObject>
          Forwards calls to a given file object.
 class SimpleJavaFileObject
          Provides simple implementations for most methods in JavaFileObject.
 

Fields in javax.tools declared as FileObject
protected  F ForwardingFileObject.fileObject
          The file object which all methods are delegated to.
 

Methods in javax.tools that return FileObject
 FileObject ForwardingJavaFileManager.getFileForInput(JavaFileManager.Location location, String packageName, String relativeName)
           
 FileObject JavaFileManager.getFileForInput(JavaFileManager.Location location, String packageName, String relativeName)
          Gets a file object for input representing the specified relative name in the specified package in the given location.
 FileObject ForwardingJavaFileManager.getFileForOutput(JavaFileManager.Location location, String packageName, String relativeName, FileObject sibling)
           
 FileObject JavaFileManager.getFileForOutput(JavaFileManager.Location location, String packageName, String relativeName, FileObject sibling)
          Gets a file object for output representing the specified relative name in the specified package in the given location.
 

Methods in javax.tools with parameters of type FileObject
 FileObject ForwardingJavaFileManager.getFileForOutput(JavaFileManager.Location location, String packageName, String relativeName, FileObject sibling)
           
 FileObject JavaFileManager.getFileForOutput(JavaFileManager.Location location, String packageName, String relativeName, FileObject sibling)
          Gets a file object for output representing the specified relative name in the specified package in the given location.
 JavaFileObject ForwardingJavaFileManager.getJavaFileForOutput(JavaFileManager.Location location, String className, JavaFileObject.Kind kind, FileObject sibling)
           
 JavaFileObject JavaFileManager.getJavaFileForOutput(JavaFileManager.Location location, String className, JavaFileObject.Kind kind, FileObject sibling)
          Gets a file object for output representing the specified class of the specified kind in the given location.
 boolean ForwardingJavaFileManager.isSameFile(FileObject a, FileObject b)
           
 boolean StandardJavaFileManager.isSameFile(FileObject a, FileObject b)
          Compares two file objects and return true if they represent the same canonical file, zip file entry, or entry in any file system based container.
 boolean JavaFileManager.isSameFile(FileObject a, FileObject b)
          Compares two file objects and return true if they represent the same underlying object.
