Class Overview

Interface for units representing Android Dalvik bytecode containers, aka DEX files. The DEX unit interface is a virtual view of the DEX bytecode contained an Android application (APK).

Note that in the case of multi-DEX APKs, the DEX unit represents a virtual, unified view of the separate DEX files contained in the APK. If required, the individual information about those DEX files can be retrieved via IDexFile.

Like many units, DEX unit objects emit UnitChange when the unit contents is being changed. IDexUnit set up event objects such that getData() will return a UnitChangeEventData with fields reasonably populated.
