Class WideningCategories.LowestUpperBoundClassNode

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    GroovydocHolder<AnnotatedNode>, NodeMetaDataHandler
    Enclosing class:
    WideningCategories

    public static class WideningCategories.LowestUpperBoundClassNode
    extends ClassNode
    This ClassNode specialization is used when the lowest upper bound of two types cannot be represented by an existing type. For example, if B extends A, C extends A and both C and B implement a common interface not implemented by A, then we use this class to represent the bound. At compile time, some classes like AsmClassGenerator need to know about a real class node, so we compute a "compile time" node which will be used to return a name and a type class.
