Class MethodReference

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Assignment, Writable
    Direct Known Subclasses:

    public class MethodReference
    extends ModelElement
    implements Assignment
    Represents a reference to another method, e.g. used to map a bean property from source to target type or to instantiate the return value of a mapping method (rather than calling the new operator).

        Description copied from interface: Assignment
        An assignment in itself can wrap another assignment. E.g.:
        • a MethodReference can wrap a TypeConversion, another MethodReference and ultimately a Simple
        • a TypeConversion can wrap a MethodReference, and ultimately a Simple
        Specified by:
        setAssignment in interface Assignment
        assignment - the assignment to set
      • getSourceReference

        public String getSourceReference()
        Description copied from interface: Assignment
        the source reference being a source-getter, a constant, nested method call, etc.
        Specified by:
        getSourceReference in interface Assignment
        source reference
      • getSourceType

        public Type getSourceType()

        Specified by:
        getSourceType in interface Assignment
        source type (can be null)
      • createUniqueVarName

        public String createUniqueVarName​(String desiredName)
        Description copied from interface: Assignment
