public class ClassReader
extends Object

A Java class parser to make a ClassVisitor visit an existing class. This class parses a byte array conforming to the Java class file format and calls the appropriate visit methods of a given class visitor for each field, method and bytecode instruction encountered.

Field Detail

SKIP_CODE

public static final int SKIP_CODE
Flag to skip method code. If this class is set CODE attribute won't be visited. This can be used, for example, to retrieve annotations for methods and method parameters.

Constant Field Values

SKIP_DEBUG

public static final int SKIP_DEBUG
Flag to skip the debug information in the class. If this flag is set the debug information of the class is not visited, i.e. the visitLocalVariable and visitLineNumber methods will not be called.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

SKIP_FRAMES

public static final int SKIP_FRAMES
Flag to skip the stack map frames in the class. If this flag is set the stack map frames of the class is not visited, i.e. the visitFrame method will not be called. This flag is useful when the ClassWriter.COMPUTE_FRAMES option is used: it avoids visiting frames that will be ignored and recomputed from scratch in the class writer.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

EXPAND_FRAMES

public static final int EXPAND_FRAMES
Flag to expand the stack map frames. By default stack map frames are visited in their original format (i.e. "expanded" for classes whose version is less than V1_6, and "compressed" for the other classes). If this flag is set, stack map frames are always visited in expanded format (this option adds a decompression/recompression step in ClassReader and ClassWriter which degrades performances quite a lot).

Constant Field Values

b

public final byte[] b
The class to be parsed. The content of this array must not be modified. This field is intended for Attribute sub classes, and is normally not needed by class generators or adapters.


header

public final int header
Start index of the class header information (access, name...) in b.

Constructor Detail

            throws IOException

Parameters:
name - the fully qualified name of the class to be read.

Method Detail

getAccess

public int getAccess()
Returns the class's access flags (see Opcodes). This value may not reflect Deprecated and Synthetic flags when bytecode is before 1.5 and those flags are represented by attributes.

Returns:
the class access flags
See Also:
ClassVisitor.visit(int, int, String, String, String, String[])

getClassName

public String getClassName()
Returns the internal name of the class (see getInternalName).

Returns:
the internal class name
See Also:
ClassVisitor.visit(int, int, String, String, String, String[])

getSuperName

public String getSuperName()
Returns the internal of name of the super class (see getInternalName). For interfaces, the super class is Object.

Returns:
the internal name of super class, or null for Object class.
See Also:
ClassVisitor.visit(int, int, String, String, String, String[])

getInterfaces

public String[] getInterfaces()
Returns the internal names of the class's interfaces (see getInternalName).

Returns:
the array of internal names for all implemented interfaces or null.
See Also:
ClassVisitor.visit(int, int, String, String, String, String[])

accept

public void accept(ClassVisitor classVisitor,
                   int flags)
Makes the given visitor visit the Java class of this ClassReader. This class is the one specified in the constructor (see ClassReader).

Parameters:
classVisitor - the visitor that must visit this class.
flags - option flags that can be used to modify the default behavior of this class. See SKIP_DEBUG, EXPAND_FRAMES, SKIP_FRAMES, SKIP_CODE.

accept

public void accept(ClassVisitor classVisitor,
                   Attribute[] attrs,
                   int flags)
Makes the given visitor visit the Java class of this ClassReader. This class is the one specified in the constructor (see ClassReader).

Parameters:
classVisitor - the visitor that must visit this class.
attrs - prototypes of the attributes that must be parsed during the visit of the class. Any attribute whose type is not equal to the type of one the prototypes will not be parsed: its byte array value will be passed unchanged to the ClassWriter. This may corrupt it if this value contains references to the constant pool, or has syntactic or semantic links with a class element that has been transformed by a class adapter between the reader and the writer.
flags - option flags that can be used to modify the default behavior of this class. See SKIP_DEBUG, EXPAND_FRAMES, SKIP_FRAMES, SKIP_CODE.

readLabel

protected Label readLabel(int offset,
                          Label[] labels)
Returns the label corresponding to the given offset. The default implementation of this method creates a label for the given offset if it has not been already created.

Parameters:
offset - a bytecode offset in a method.
labels - the already created labels, indexed by their offset. If a label already exists for offset this method must not create a new one. Otherwise it must store the new label in this array.
Returns:
a non null Label, which must be equal to labels[offset].

getItem

public int getItem(int item)
Returns the start index of the constant pool item in b, plus one. This method is intended for Attribute sub classes, and is normally not needed by class generators or adapters.

Parameters:
item - the index a constant pool item.
Returns:
the start index of the constant pool item in b, plus one.

readByte

public int readByte(int index)
Reads a byte value in b. This method is intended for Attribute sub classes, and is normally not needed by class generators or adapters.

the String corresponding to the specified UTF8 item.

readClass
