Enum Diagnostic.Kind

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Comparable<Diagnostic.Kind>
    Enclosing interface:

    public static enum Diagnostic.Kind
    extends Enum<Diagnostic.Kind>
    Kinds of diagnostics, for example, error or warning. The kind of a diagnostic can be used to determine how the diagnostic should be presented to the user. For example, errors might be colored red or prefixed with the word "Error", while warnings might be colored yellow or prefixed with the word "Warning". There is no requirement that the Kind should imply any inherent semantic meaning to the message of the diagnostic: for example, a tool might provide an option to report all warnings as errors.
    • Enum Constant Detail

      • ERROR

        public static final Diagnostic.Kind ERROR
        Problem which prevents the tool's normal completion.
      • WARNING

        public static final Diagnostic.Kind WARNING
        Problem which does not usually prevent the tool from completing normally.

        public static final Diagnostic.Kind MANDATORY_WARNING
        Problem similar to a warning, but is mandated by the tool's specification. For example, the Java™ Language Specification mandates warnings on certain unchecked operations and the use of deprecated methods.
      • NOTE

        public static final Diagnostic.Kind NOTE
        Informative message from the tool.
      • OTHER

        public static final Diagnostic.Kind OTHER
        Diagnostic which does not fit within the other kinds.
    • Method Detail

      • values

        public static Diagnostic.Kind[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (Diagnostic.Kind c : Diagnostic.Kind.values())
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static Diagnostic.Kind valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        the enum constant with the specified name
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
