Class Overview

A "runtime" artifact, that connects a project, an artifact, and root units. A live artifact is a representation of an artifact loaded in a project, and whose . loading process has possibly yielded units.

As such, a live artifact ties three essentials components together:

  • a project
  • an artifact
  • root unit(s)

Summary

Public Methods
abstract IArtifact getArtifact()
Get the input artifact.
abstract IRuntimeProject getRuntimeProject()
Get the runtime project.
abstract List<IUnit> getUnits()
Get the units that resulted from the analysis of the artifact within a given project.

Public Methods

public abstract IArtifact getArtifact ()

Get the input artifact.

Returns
  • the input artifact, never null

public abstract IRuntimeProject getRuntimeProject ()

Get the runtime project.

Returns
  • the runtime project, never null

public abstract List<IUnit> getUnits ()

Get the units that resulted from the analysis of the artifact within a given project. Only the top-level units (ie, those whose direct parent is this artifact) are returned; sub-level units (ie, those whose parents are other units) can be retrieved by calling getChildren() on the units, recursively.

Returns
  • the units, possibly empty list, but never null
