public static interface JavaFileManager.Location
Location corresponds to a "search path", such as a class
path or module path, as used by command-line tools that use the default file system.
Some locations are typically used to identify a place in which a tool can find files to be read; others are typically used to identify a place where a tool can write files. If a location is used to identify a place for reading files, those files may be organized in a simple package/class hierarchy: such locations are described as package-oriented. Alternatively, the files may be organized in a module/package/class hierarchy: such locations are described as module-oriented. If a location is typically used to identify a place where a tool can write files, it is up to the tool that writes the files to specify how those files will be organized.
You can access the classes in a package-oriented location using methods like
JavaFileManager.getJavaFileForInput(javax.tools.JavaFileManager.Location, java.lang.String, javax.tools.JavaFileObject.Kind) or
JavaFileManager.list(javax.tools.JavaFileManager.Location, java.lang.String, java.util.Set<javax.tools.JavaFileObject.Kind>, boolean).
It is not possible to directly list the classes in a module-oriented
location. Instead, you can get a package-oriented location for any specific module
using methods like
JavaFileManager.getLocationForModule(javax.tools.JavaFileManager.Location, java.lang.String) or
|Modifier and Type||Method||Description|
NEW Indicates if this location is module-oriented location, and therefore expected to contain classes in a module/package/class hierarchy, as compared to a package-oriented location, which is expected to contain classes in a package/class hierarchy.
Returns the name of this location.
Determines if this is an output location.
default boolean isModuleOrientedLocation()
