Description Max Sauer 2009-08-14 13:26:46 UTC

enum TestEnum {
  A, B

and invoking 'Add default serialVersionUID' hint produces code with error -- missing semicolon, which leads to uncompilable code.
Comment 1 Max Sauer 2009-08-14 13:41:30 UTC
I would like to propose a small change in java.source API.

For this issue and possibly also elsewhere, it would be nice to introduce a new method in to be able to recognize 
an Enum constant from tree. Similar methods are already present.

Method signature:
public boolean isEnumConstant(VariableTree tree)

I'll attach diff.

Comment 3 Dusan Balek 2009-08-14 14:01:57 UTC
Strange description in apichanges.xml:
"Added <code>TreeUtilities.isEnumConstant()</code> to return the TreeUtilities."

Otherwise it seems OK to me.
