Class EclipseElementUtilsDecorator

    • Method Detail

      • replaceTypeElementIfNecessary

        protected TypeElement replaceTypeElementIfNecessary​(TypeElement element)
        When running during Eclipse Incremental Compilation, we might get a TypeElement that has an UnresolvedTypeBinding and which is not automatically resolved. In that case, getEnclosedElements returns an empty list. We take that as a hint to check if the TypeElement resolved by FQN might have any enclosed elements and, if so, return the resolved element.

        element - the original element
        the element freshly resolved using the qualified name, if the original element did not return any enclosed elements, whereas the resolved element does return enclosed elements.
