Enum Modifier

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.io.Serializable, java.lang.Comparable<Modifier>, java.lang.constant.Constable

    public enum Modifier
    extends java.lang.Enum<Modifier>
    Represents a modifier on a program element such as a class, method, or field.

    Not all modifiers are applicable to all kinds of elements. When two or more modifiers appear in the source code of an element then it is customary, though not required, that they appear in the same order as the constants listed in the detail section below.

    Note that it is possible additional modifiers will be added in future versions of the platform.
