Provides Java Model API access.
ensure.built.source.roots property is set during ant script execution,
javac task will not actually build the classfiles from scratch, but rather copy classfiles
produced by the Java infrastructure into the output folder. The content of the property will
be interpreted as list of source roots, for which the artifacts should be copied.
Added a possibility to specify remote javadoc handling policy in
If a transformation moves a Tree node elsewhere, or produces a replacement of it, it can now mark the new tree as a 'replacement' for the old one, which causes whitespaces (most notably comments) to attach to the replacement node.
Runtime compatibility remains, compile time compatibility is
mostly preserved too. It is however recommended to upgrade
dependencies of client modules. Try running
ant fix-dependencies in your Ant module.
Added new utility methods getPathElementOfKind and getUninitializedFields to TreeUtilities. Added new utility methods getElementName, findOverridableMethods, hasGetter and hasSetter to ElementUtilities. Added new utility methods resolveCapturedType and getForwardReferences to SourceUtils.
Added utility methods to find span of a Label's name in the source. Returns starting and ending offset of the label's name in the source code that was parsed (ie. CompilationInfo.getText()), which may differ from the positions in the source document if it has been already altered.
