Interface InterfaceType

All Superinterfaces:
Accessible, Comparable<ReferenceType>, Mirror, ReferenceType, Type

public interface InterfaceType
extends ReferenceType

A mirror of an interface in the target VM. An InterfaceType is a refinement of ReferenceType that applies to true interfaces in the JLS sense of the definition (not a class, not an array type). An interface type will never be returned by ObjectReference.referenceType(), but it may be in the list of implemented interfaces for a ClassType that is returned by that method.

Since:
1.3

ObjectReference

 List<InterfaceType> subinterfaces()
          Gets the currently prepared interfaces which directly extend this interface.
 List<InterfaceType> superinterfaces()
          Gets the interfaces directly extended by this interface.

Method Detail

superinterfaces

List<InterfaceType> superinterfaces()
Gets the interfaces directly extended by this interface. The returned list contains only those interfaces this interface has declared to be extended.

Returns:
a List of InterfaceType objects each mirroring an interface extended by this interface. If none exist, returns a zero length List.
Throws:
ClassNotPreparedException - if this class not yet been prepared.

subinterfaces

List<InterfaceType> subinterfaces()
Gets the currently prepared interfaces which directly extend this interface. The returned list contains only those interfaces that declared this interface in their "extends" clause.

Returns:
a List of InterfaceType objects each mirroring an interface extending this interface. If none exist, returns a zero length List.

implementors

List<ClassType> implementors()
Gets the currently prepared classes which directly implement this interface. The returned list contains only those classes that declared this interface in their "implements" clause.

Returns:
a List of ClassType objects each mirroring a class implementing this interface. If none exist, returns a zero length List.
