Interface Element

    • Method Detail

      • getSource

        Object getSource()
        Returns an arbitrary object containing information about the "place" where this element was configured. Used by Guice in the production of descriptive error messages.

        Tools might specially handle types they know about; StackTraceElement is a good example. Tools should simply call toString() on the source object if the type is unfamiliar.

        Accepts an element visitor. Invokes the visitor method specific to this element's type.

        void applyTo​(Binder binder)
        Writes this module element to the given binder (optional operation).
