Class SnippetEvent

  • public class SnippetEvent
    extends Object
    A description of a change to a Snippet. These are generated by direct changes to state with JShell.eval(String) or JShell.drop(Snippet), or indirectly by these same methods as dependencies change or Snippets are overwritten. For direct changes, the causeSnippet() is null.

    SnippetEvent is immutable: an access to any of its methods will always return the same result. and thus is thread-safe.
