    public abstract class MethodVisitor
    extends java.lang.Object
    A visitor to visit a Java method. The methods of this class must be called in the following order: ( visitParameter )* [ visitAnnotationDefault ] ( visitAnnotation | visitAnnotableParameterCount | visitParameterAnnotation visitTypeAnnotation | visitAttribute )* [ visitCode ( visitFrame | visit<i>X</i>Insn | visitLabel | visitInsnAnnotation | visitTryCatchBlock | visitTryCatchAnnotation | visitLocalVariable | visitLocalVariableAnnotation | visitLineNumber )* visitMaxs ] visitEnd. In addition, the visit<i>X</i>Insn and visitLabel methods must be called in the sequential order of the bytecode instructions of the visited code, visitInsnAnnotation must be called after the annotated instruction, visitTryCatchBlock must be called before the labels passed as arguments have been visited, visitTryCatchBlockAnnotation must be called after the corresponding try catch block has been visited, and the visitLocalVariable, visitLocalVariableAnnotation and visitLineNumber methods must be called after the labels passed as arguments have been visited.

    • Method Detail

      • visitParameter

        public void visitParameter(java.lang.String name,
                                   int access)
        Visits a parameter of this method.
        Parameters:
        name - parameter name or null if none is provided.
        access - the parameter's access flags, only ACC_FINAL, ACC_SYNTHETIC or/and ACC_MANDATED are allowed (see Opcodes).
      • visitAnnotationDefault

        public AnnotationVisitor visitAnnotationDefault()
        Visits the default value of this annotation interface method.
        Returns:
        a visitor to the visit the actual default value of this annotation interface method, or null if this visitor is not interested in visiting this default value. The 'name' parameters passed to the methods of this annotation visitor are ignored. Moreover, exacly one visit method must be called on this annotation visitor, followed by visitEnd.
      • visitAnnotation

        public AnnotationVisitor visitAnnotation(java.lang.String descriptor,
                                                 boolean visible)
        Visits an annotation of this method.
        Parameters:
        descriptor - the class descriptor of the annotation class.
        visible - true if the annotation is visible at runtime.
        Returns:
        a visitor to visit the annotation values, or null if this visitor is not interested in visiting this annotation.
      • visitAnnotableParameterCount

        public void visitAnnotableParameterCount(int parameterCount,
                                                 boolean visible)
        Visits the number of method parameters that can have annotations. By default (i.e. when this method is not called), all the method parameters defined by the method descriptor can have annotations.
        Parameters:
        parameterCount - the number of method parameters than can have annotations. This number must be less or equal than the number of parameter types in the method descriptor. It can be strictly less when a method has synthetic parameters and when these parameters are ignored when computing parameter indices for the purpose of parameter annotations (see https://docs.oracle.com/javase/specs/jvms/se9/html/jvms-4.php#jvms-4.7.18).
        visible - true to define the number of method parameters that can have annotations visible at runtime, false to define the number of method parameters that can have annotations invisible at runtime.
      • visitParameterAnnotation

        public AnnotationVisitor visitParameterAnnotation(int parameter,
                                                          java.lang.String descriptor,
                                                          boolean visible)
        Visits an annotation of a parameter this method.
        Parameters:
        parameter - the parameter index. This index must be strictly smaller than the number of parameters in the method descriptor, and strictly smaller than the parameter count specified in visitAnnotableParameterCount(int, boolean). Important note: a parameter index i is not required to correspond to the i'th parameter descriptor in the method descriptor, in particular in case of synthetic parameters (see https://docs.oracle.com/javase/specs/jvms/se9/html/jvms-4.php#jvms-4.7.18).
        descriptor - the class descriptor of the annotation class.
        visible - true if the annotation is visible at runtime.
        Returns:
        a visitor to visit the annotation values, or null if this visitor is not interested in visiting this annotation.
      • visitAttribute

        public void visitAttribute(Attribute attribute)
        Visits a non standard attribute of this method.
        Parameters:
        attribute - an attribute.
      • visitCode

        public void visitCode()
        Starts the visit of the method's code, if any (i.e. non abstract method).
      • visitFrame

        public void visitFrame(int type,
                               int numLocal,
                               java.lang.Object[] local,
                               int numStack,
                               java.lang.Object[] stack)
        Visits the current state of the local variables and operand stack elements. This method must(*) be called just before any instruction i that follows an unconditional branch instruction such as GOTO or THROW, that is the target of a jump instruction, or that starts an exception handler block. The visited types must describe the values of the local variables and of the operand stack elements just before i is executed.

        (*) this is mandatory only for classes whose version is greater than or equal to Opcodes.V1_6.

        The frames of a method must be given either in expanded form, or in compressed form (all frames must use the same format, i.e. you must not mix expanded and compressed frames within a single method):
        • In expanded form, all frames must have the F_NEW type.
        • In compressed form, frames are basically "deltas" from the state of the previous frame:
          • Opcodes.F_SAME representing frame with exactly the same locals as the previous frame and with the empty stack.
          • Opcodes.F_SAME1 representing frame with exactly the same locals as the previous frame and with single value on the stack ( numStack is 1 and stack[0] contains value for the type of the stack item).
          • Opcodes.F_APPEND representing frame with current locals are the same as the locals in the previous frame, except that additional locals are defined ( numLocal is 1, 2 or 3 and local elements contains values representing added types).
          • Opcodes.F_CHOP representing frame with current locals are the same as the locals in the previous frame, except that the last 1-3 locals are absent and with the empty stack (numLocal is 1, 2 or 3).
          • Opcodes.F_FULL representing complete frame data.

        In both cases the first frame, corresponding to the method's parameters and access flags, is implicit and must not be visited. Also, it is illegal to visit two or more frames for the same code location (i.e., at least one instruction must be visited between two calls to visitFrame).
        Parameters:
        type - the type of this stack map frame. Must be Opcodes.F_NEW for expanded frames, or Opcodes.F_FULL, Opcodes.F_APPEND, Opcodes.F_CHOP, Opcodes.F_SAME or Opcodes.F_APPEND, Opcodes.F_SAME1 for compressed frames.
        numLocal - the number of local variables in the visited frame.
        local - the local variable types in this frame. This array must not be modified. Primitive types are represented by Opcodes.TOP, Opcodes.INTEGER, Opcodes.FLOAT, Opcodes.LONG, Opcodes.DOUBLE, Opcodes.NULL or Opcodes.UNINITIALIZED_THIS (long and double are represented by a single element). Reference types are represented by String objects (representing internal names), and uninitialized types by Label objects (this label designates the NEW instruction that created this uninitialized value).
        numStack - the number of operand stack elements in the visited frame.
        stack - the operand stack types in this frame. This array must not be modified. Its content has the same format as the "local" array.
        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalStateException - if a frame is visited just after another one, without any instruction between the two (unless this frame is a Opcodes#F_SAME frame, in which case it is silently ignored).

        Visits a local variable declaration.
        Parameters:
        name - the name of a local variable.
        descriptor - the type descriptor of this local variable.
        signature - the type signature of this local variable. May be null if the local variable type does not use generic types.
        start - the first instruction corresponding to the scope of this local variable (inclusive).
        end - the last instruction corresponding to the scope of this local variable (exclusive).
        index - the local variable's index.
        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if one of the labels has not already been visited by this visitor (by the visitLabel(org.springframework.asm.Label) method).
      • visitLocalVariableAnnotation

        public AnnotationVisitor visitLocalVariableAnnotation(int typeRef,

        Visits an annotation on a local variable type.
        Parameters:
        typeRef - a reference to the annotated type. The sort of this type reference must be TypeReference.LOCAL_VARIABLE or TypeReference.RESOURCE_VARIABLE. See TypeReference.
        typePath - the path to the annotated type argument, wildcard bound, array element type, or static inner type within 'typeRef'. May be null if the annotation targets 'typeRef' as a whole.
        start - the fist instructions corresponding to the continuous ranges that make the scope of this local variable (inclusive).
        end - the last instructions corresponding to the continuous ranges that make the scope of this local variable (exclusive). This array must have the same size as the 'start' array.
        index - the local variable's index in each range. This array must have the same size as the 'start' array.
        descriptor - the class descriptor of the annotation class.
        visible - true if the annotation is visible at runtime.
        Returns:
        a visitor to visit the annotation values, or null if this visitor is not interested in visiting this annotation.
      • visitLineNumber

        public void visitLineNumber(int line,
                                    Label start)
        Visits a line number declaration.
        Parameters:
        line - a line number. This number refers to the source file from which the class was compiled.
        start - the first instruction corresponding to this line number.
        Throws:
        java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if start has not already been visited by this visitor (by the visitLabel(org.springframework.asm.Label) method).
      • visitMaxs

        public void visitMaxs(int maxStack,
                              int maxLocals)
        Visits the maximum stack size and the maximum number of local variables of the method.
        Parameters:
        maxStack - maximum stack size of the method.
        maxLocals - maximum number of local variables for the method.
      • visitEnd

        public void visitEnd()
        Visits the end of the method. This method, which is the last one to be called, is used to inform the visitor that all the annotations and attributes of the method have been visited.
