Direct Known Subclasses:
TypeBase

public abstract class JavaType
extends com.fasterxml.jackson.core.type.ResolvedType

Base class for type token classes used both to contain information and as keys for deserializers.

Instances can (only) be constructed by com.fasterxml.jackson.databind.TypeFactory (included in "jackson-databind")


Field Summary
protected  Class<?>_class

protected  Object_typeHandler
          Optional handler that can be attached to indicate how to handle additional type metadata associated with this type.
protected  Object_valueHandler
          Optional handler (codec) that can be attached to indicate what to use for handling (serializing, deserializing) values of this specific type.

Field Detail

_class

protected final Class<?> _class
This is the nominal type-erased Class that would be close to the type represented (but not exactly type, due to type erasure: type instance may have more information on this). May be an interface or abstract class, so instantiation may not be possible.


_hashCode

protected final int _hashCode

_valueHandler

protected final Object _valueHandler
Optional handler (codec) that can be attached to indicate what to use for handling (serializing, deserializing) values of this specific type.

Note: untyped (i.e. caller has to cast) because it is used for different kinds of handlers, with unrelated types.


_typeHandler

protected final Object _typeHandler
Optional handler that can be attached to indicate how to handle additional type metadata associated with this type.

Note: untyped (i.e. caller has to cast) because it is used for different kinds of handlers, with unrelated types.

Constructor Detail

JavaType

protected JavaType(Class<?> raw,                   int additionalHash,                   Object valueHandler,                   Object typeHandler)
Parameters:
raw - "Raw" (type-erased) class for this type
additionalHash - Additional hash code to use, in addition to hash code of the class name
Method Detail

withTypeHandler

public abstract JavaType withTypeHandler(Object h)
"Copy method" that will construct a new instance that is identical to this instance, except that it will have specified type handler assigned.

Returns:
Newly created type instance

withContentTypeHandler

public abstract JavaType withContentTypeHandler(Object h)
"Copy method" that will construct a new instance that is identical to this instance, except that its content type will have specified type handler assigned.

Returns:
Newly created type instance

withValueHandler

public abstract JavaType withValueHandler(Object h)
"Copy method" that will construct a new instance that is identical to this instance, except that it will have specified value handler assigned.

Returns:
Newly created type instance

withContentValueHandler

public abstract JavaType withContentValueHandler(Object h)
"Copy method" that will construct a new instance that is identical to this instance, except that it will have specified content value handler assigned.

Returns:
Newly created type instance

narrowBy

public JavaType narrowBy(Class<?> subclass)
Method that can be called to do a "narrowing" conversions; that is, to return a type with a raw class that is assignable to the raw class of this type. If this is not possible, an IllegalArgumentException is thrown. If class is same as the current raw class, instance itself is returned.


forcedNarrowBy

public JavaType forcedNarrowBy(Class<?> subclass)
More efficient version of narrowBy(java.lang.Class), called by internal framework in cases where compatibility checks are to be skipped.


widenBy

public JavaType widenBy(Class<?> superclass)
Method that can be called to do a "widening" conversions; that is, to return a type with a raw class that could be assigned from this type. If such conversion is not possible, an IllegalArgumentException is thrown. If class is same as the current raw class, instance itself is returned.


_narrow

protected abstract JavaType _narrow(Class<?> subclass)

_widen

protected JavaType _widen(Class<?> superclass)

Default implementation is just to call _narrow(java.lang.Class), since underlying type construction is usually identical

widenContentsBy

public abstract JavaType widenContentsBy(Class<?> contentClass)
