      • asType

        javax.lang.model.type.TypeMirror asType()
        Returns the executable type defined by this executable element.
        Specified by:
        asType in interface Element
        Returns:
        the executable type defined by this executable element

      • getTypeParameters

        java.util.List<? extends TypeParameterElement> getTypeParameters()
        Returns the formal type parameters of this executable in declaration order.
        Specified by:
        getTypeParameters in interface Parameterizable
        Returns:
        the formal type parameters, or an empty list if there are none
      • getReturnType

        javax.lang.model.type.TypeMirror getReturnType()
        Returns the return type of this executable. Returns a NoType with kind VOID if this executable is not a method, or is a method that does not return a value.
        Returns:
        the return type of this executable
      • getParameters

        java.util.List<? extends VariableElement> getParameters()
        Returns the formal parameters of this executable. They are returned in declaration order.
        Returns:
        the formal parameters, or an empty list if there are none
      • getReceiverType

        javax.lang.model.type.TypeMirror getReceiverType()
        Returns the receiver type of this executable, or NoType with kind NONE if the executable has no receiver type. An executable which is an instance method, or a constructor of an inner class, has a receiver type derived from the declaring type. An executable which is a static method, or a constructor of a non-inner class, or an initializer (static or instance), has no receiver type.
        Returns:
        the receiver type of this executable

      • isVarArgs

        boolean isVarArgs()
        Returns true if this method or constructor accepts a variable number of arguments and returns false otherwise.
        Returns:
        true if this method or constructor accepts a variable number of arguments and false otherwise
      • isDefault

        boolean isDefault()
        Returns true if this method is a default method and returns false otherwise.
        Returns:
        true if this method is a default method and false otherwise
        Since:
        1.8
      • getThrownTypes

        java.util.List<? extends javax.lang.model.type.TypeMirror> getThrownTypes()
        Returns the exceptions and other throwables listed in this method or constructor's throws clause in declaration order.
        Returns:
        the exceptions and other throwables listed in the throws clause, or an empty list if there are none
      • getDefaultValue

        AnnotationValue getDefaultValue()
        Returns the default value if this executable is an annotation type element. Returns null if this method is not an annotation type element, or if it is an annotation type element with no default value.
        Returns:
        the default value, or null if none
