Enum Constant Detail

SOURCE

public static final JavaFileObject.Kind SOURCE
Source files written in the Java programming language. For example, regular files ending with .java.


CLASS

public static final JavaFileObject.Kind CLASS
Class files for the Java Virtual Machine. For example, regular files ending with .class.


HTML

public static final JavaFileObject.Kind HTML
HTML files. For example, regular files ending with .html.


OTHER

public static final JavaFileObject.Kind OTHER
Any other kind.

Field Detail

extension

public final String extension
The extension which (by convention) is normally used for this kind of file object. If no convention exists, the empty string ("") is used.

Method Detail

values

public static JavaFileObject.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 (JavaFileObject.Kind c : JavaFileObject.Kind.values())
    System.out.println(c);

Returns:
an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared

valueOf

public static JavaFileObject.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.)

Parameters:
name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
Returns:
the enum constant with the specified name
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
NullPointerException - if the argument is null
