Uses of Interface
javax.tools.JavaFileObject

Packages that use JavaFileObject
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 JavaFileObject in javax.annotation.processing
 

Methods in javax.annotation.processing that return JavaFileObject
 JavaFileObject Filer.createClassFile(CharSequence name, Element... originatingElements)
          Creates a new class file, and returns an object to allow writing to it.
 JavaFileObject Filer.createSourceFile(CharSequence name, Element... originatingElements)
          Creates a new source file and returns an object to allow writing to it.
 

Uses of JavaFileObject in javax.tools
 

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

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