Interface Path

  • All Superinterfaces:

    public interface Path
    extends java.lang.Iterable<Path.Node>
    Represents the navigation path from an object to another in an object graph. Each path element is represented by a Node.

    The path corresponds to the succession of nodes in the order they are returned by the Iterator.

      java.lang.String toString​()
      Returns a human-readable representation of this path.

      • toString

        java.lang.String toString​()
        Returns a human-readable representation of this path.

        Clients should not rely on any specific structure of the returned value. Instead they should iterate through the path nodes and obtain any required information by calling the methods on Path.Node and its sub-types.
