Interface JavaFileManager

  • All Superinterfaces:
    AutoCloseable, Closeable, Flushable, OptionChecker
    All Known Subinterfaces:
    StandardJavaFileManager
    All Known Implementing Classes:
    ForwardingJavaFileManager


    public interface JavaFileManager
    extends Closeable, Flushable, OptionChecker
    File manager for tools operating on Java™ programming language source and class files. In this context, file means an abstraction of regular files and other sources of data.

    When constructing new JavaFileObjects, the file manager must determine where to create them. For example, if a file manager manages regular files on a file system, it would most likely have a current/working directory to use as default location when creating or finding files. A number of hints can be provided to a file manager as to where to create files. Any file manager might choose to ignore these hints.

    Some methods in this interface use class names. Such class names must be given in the Java Virtual Machine internal form of fully qualified class and interface names. For convenience '.' and '/' are interchangeable. The internal form is defined in chapter four of The Java™ Virtual Machine Specification.

    Discussion: this means that the names "java/lang.package-info", "java/lang/package-info", "java.lang.package-info", are valid and equivalent. Compare to binary name as defined in The Java™ Language Specification, section 13.1 "The Form of a Binary".

    The case of names is significant. All names should be treated as case-sensitive. For example, some file systems have case-insensitive, case-aware file names. File objects representing such files should take care to preserve case by using File.getCanonicalFile() or similar means. If the system is not case-aware, file objects must use other means to preserve case.

    Relative names: some methods in this interface use relative names. A relative name is a non-null, non-empty sequence of path segments separated by '/'. '.' or '..' are invalid path segments. A valid relative name must match the "path-rootless" rule of RFC 3986, section 3.3. Informally, this should be true:

      URI.create(relativeName).normalize().getPath().equals(relativeName)

    All methods in this interface might throw a SecurityException.

    An object of this interface is not required to support multi-threaded access, that is, be synchronized. However, it must support concurrent access to different file objects created by this object.

    Implementation note: a consequence of this requirement is that a trivial implementation of output to a JarOutputStream is not a sufficient implementation. That is, rather than creating a JavaFileObject that returns the JarOutputStream directly, the contents must be cached until closed and then written to the JarOutputStream.

    Unless explicitly allowed, all methods in this interface might throw a NullPointerException if given a null argument.

    • Method Detail

      • getClassLoader

        ClassLoader getClassLoader(JavaFileManager.Location location)
        Gets a class loader for loading plug-ins from the given location. For example, to load annotation processors, a compiler will request a class loader for the ANNOTATION_PROCESSOR_PATH location.
        Parameters:
        location - a location
        Returns:
        a class loader for the given location; or null if loading plug-ins from the given location is disabled or if the location is not known
        Throws:
        SecurityException - if a class loader can not be created in the current security context
        IllegalStateException - if close() has been called and this file manager cannot be reopened
      • list

        Iterable<JavaFileObject> list(JavaFileManager.Location location,

        String inferBinaryName(JavaFileManager.Location location,
                               JavaFileObject file)
        Infers a binary name of a file object based on a location. The binary name returned might not be a valid binary name according to The Java™ Language Specification.
        Parameters:
        location - a location
        file - a file object
        Returns:
        a binary name or null the file object is not found in the given location
        Throws:

      • isSameFile

        boolean isSameFile(FileObject a,
                           FileObject b)
        Compares two file objects and return true if they represent the same underlying object.
        Parameters:
        a - a file object
        b - a file object
        Returns:
        true if the given file objects represent the same underlying object
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if either of the arguments were created with another file manager and this file manager does not support foreign file objects
      • handleOption

        boolean handleOption(String current,
                             Iterator<String> remaining)
        Handles one option. If current is an option to this file manager it will consume any arguments to that option from remaining and return true, otherwise return false.
        Parameters:
        current - current option
        remaining - remaining options
        Returns:
        true if this option was handled by this file manager, false otherwise
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if this option to this file manager is used incorrectly
        IllegalStateException - if close() has been called and this file manager cannot be reopened
      • hasLocation

        boolean hasLocation(JavaFileManager.Location location)
        Determines if a location is known to this file manager.
        Parameters:
        location - a location
        Returns:
        true if the location is known
      • getJavaFileForOutput

        JavaFileObject getJavaFileForOutput(JavaFileManager.Location location,
                                            String className,
                                            JavaFileObject.Kind kind,
                                            FileObject sibling)
                                     throws IOException
        Gets a file object for output representing the specified class of the specified kind in the given location.

        Optionally, this file manager might consider the sibling as a hint for where to place the output. The exact semantics of this hint is unspecified. The JDK compiler, javac, for example, will place class files in the same directories as originating source files unless a class file output directory is provided. To facilitate this behavior, javac might provide the originating source file as sibling when calling this method.

        Parameters:
        location - a location
        className - the name of a class
        kind - the kind of file, must be one of SOURCE or CLASS
        sibling - a file object to be used as hint for placement; might be null
        Returns:
        a file object for output
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if sibling is not known to this file manager, or if the location is not known to this file manager and the file manager does not support unknown locations, or if the kind is not valid
        IOException - if an I/O error occurred, or if close() has been called and this file manager cannot be reopened
        IllegalStateException - close() has been called and this file manager cannot be reopened
      • getFileForInput

        FileObject getFileForInput(JavaFileManager.Location location,
                                   String packageName,
                                   String relativeName)
                            throws IOException
        Gets a file object for input representing the specified relative name in the specified package in the given location.

        If the returned object represents a source or class file, it must be an instance of JavaFileObject.

        Informally, the file object returned by this method is located in the concatenation of the location, package name, and relative name. For example, to locate the properties file "resources/compiler.properties" in the package "com.sun.tools.javac" in the SOURCE_PATH location, this method might be called like so:

        getFileForInput(SOURCE_PATH, "com.sun.tools.javac", "resources/compiler.properties");

        If the call was executed on Windows, with SOURCE_PATH set to "C:\Documents and Settings\UncleBob\src\share\classes", a valid result would be a file object representing the file "C:\Documents and Settings\UncleBob\src\share\classes\com\sun\tools\javac\resources\compiler.properties".

        Parameters:
        location - a location
        packageName - a package name
        relativeName - a relative name
        Returns:
        a file object, might return null if the file does not exist
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if the location is not known to this file manager and the file manager does not support unknown locations, or if relativeName is not valid
        IOException - if an I/O error occurred, or if close() has been called and this file manager cannot be reopened
        IllegalStateException - if close() has been called and this file manager cannot be reopened
      • getFileForOutput

        FileObject getFileForOutput(JavaFileManager.Location location,
                                    String packageName,
                                    String relativeName,
                                    FileObject sibling)
                             throws IOException
        Gets a file object for output representing the specified relative name in the specified package in the given location.

        Optionally, this file manager might consider the sibling as a hint for where to place the output. The exact semantics of this hint is unspecified. The JDK compiler, javac, for example, will place class files in the same directories as originating source files unless a class file output directory is provided. To facilitate this behavior, javac might provide the originating source file as sibling when calling this method.

        If the returned object represents a source or class file, it must be an instance of JavaFileObject.

        Informally, the file object returned by this method is located in the concatenation of the location, package name, and relative name or next to the sibling argument. See getFileForInput for an example.

        Parameters:
        location - a location
        packageName - a package name
        relativeName - a relative name
        sibling - a file object to be used as hint for placement; might be null
        Returns:
        a file object
        Throws:
        IllegalArgumentException - if sibling is not known to this file manager, or if the location is not known to this file manager and the file manager does not support unknown locations, or if relativeName is not valid
        IOException - if an I/O error occurred, or if close() has been called and this file manager cannot be reopened
        IllegalStateException - if close() has been called and this file manager cannot be reopened
      • flush

        void flush()
            throws IOException
        Flushes any resources opened for output by this file manager directly or indirectly. Flushing a closed file manager has no effect.
        Specified by:
        flush in interface Flushable
        Throws:
        IOException - if an I/O error occurred
        See Also:
        close()
      • close

        void close()
            throws IOException
        Releases any resources opened by this file manager directly or indirectly. This might render this file manager useless and the effect of subsequent calls to methods on this object or any objects obtained through this object is undefined unless explicitly allowed. However, closing a file manager which has already been closed has no effect.
        Specified by:
        close in interface AutoCloseable
        Specified by:
        close in interface Closeable
        Throws:
        IOException - if an I/O error occurred
        See Also:
        flush()
