fieldAccessT(#id, #parent, #encl, #receiver, #field, #type)

Represents a field access expression (read access and write access).

  • JTransformer 4.0: Renamed from getFieldT to fieldAccessT, removed argument name, added argument type


#id: id
the unique ID of this field access.

#parent: id
ID of the parent node.

#encl: methodT, constructorT, classInitializerT, classT, fieldT, annotationMemberT, packageT
ID of the fact that represents the enclosing element.

#receiver: expression, staticTypeRefT, 'null'
ID of the expression on which the field is accessed or 'null' for the implicit field access.
In case of an access to a static field #expr is a staticTypeRefT.

#field: fieldT
ID of the accessed field.

#type: Type reference, wildcardT, 'null'
Type of the field access (for paramtereized types this may differ from the type of the field)

Sample Java Code

int field = 1;

public void fieldAccess() {
     int j = field;

Its PEF Representation

fieldT(Field, ..., _, 'field', ...),

methodT(Method, ..., 'fieldAccess', ...),
localT(Local, ..., 'j', FieldAccess),
fieldAccessT(FieldAccess, Local, Method, 'null', Field, RefToInt).

AST Specification

     ast_arg(id,       mult(1,1,no ), id,  [fieldAccessT]),
     ast_arg(parent,   mult(1,1,no ), id,  [id]),
     ast_arg(encl,     mult(1,1,no ), id,  [methodT, constructorT, classInitializerT, classT, fieldT, annotationMemberT, packageT]),
     ast_arg(receiver, mult(0,1,no), id,   [nullType, expressionType, staticTypeRefT]),
     ast_arg(ref,      mult(1,1,no ), id,  [fieldT]),
     ast_arg(type,     mult(1,1,no ), id,  [type_inst, wildcardT, nullType])
