Enclosing class:
MethodHandles.Lookup

public static enum MethodHandles.Lookup.ClassOption
extends Enum<MethodHandles.Lookup.ClassOption>
The set of class options that specify whether a hidden class created by Lookup::defineHiddenClass method is dynamically added as a new member to the nest of a lookup class and/or whether a hidden class has a strong relationship with the class loader marked as its defining loader.

field:NESTMATE [NONE]

  • NESTMATE

    public static final  MethodHandles.Lookup.ClassOption NESTMATE
    Specifies that a hidden class be added to nest of a lookup class as a nestmate.

    A hidden nestmate class has access to the private members of all classes and interfaces in the same nest.

    Class.getNestHost()
  • field:STRONG [NONE]

    STRONG

    public static final  MethodHandles.Lookup.ClassOption STRONG
    Specifies that a hidden class has a strong relationship with the class loader marked as its defining loader, as a normal class or interface has with its own defining loader. This means that the hidden class may be unloaded if and only if its defining loader is not reachable and thus may be reclaimed by a garbage collector (JLS 12.7).

    By default, a hidden class or interface may be unloaded even if the class loader that is marked as its defining loader is reachable.
