    • isSafe

      public boolean isSafe()
      is this a safe method call, i.e. if true then if the source object is null then this method call will return null rather than throwing a null pointer exception
    • setSafe

      public void setSafe(boolean safe)

      public boolean isSpreadSafe()
    • setSpreadSafe

      public void setSpreadSafe(boolean value)
    • isImplicitThis

      public boolean isImplicitThis()
      true if no object expression was specified otherwise if some expression was specified for the object on which to evaluate the method then return false

    • isUsingGenerics

      public boolean isUsingGenerics()
    • getMethodTarget

      public MethodNode getMethodTarget()
      the target as method node if set
    • setMethodTarget

      public void setMethodTarget(MethodNode mn)
      Sets a method call target for a direct method call. WARNING: A method call made this way will run outside of the MOP!
      mn - the target as MethodNode, mn==null means no target
    • setSourcePosition

      public void setSourcePosition(ASTNode node)
      Description copied from class: ASTNode
      Sets the source position using another ASTNode. The sourcePosition consists of a line/column pair for the start and a line/column pair for the end of the expression or statement
