Interface TransformFormation

All Superinterfaces:
Formation

public interface TransformFormation extends Formation
Represents the formation of new tokens by a transformer. A transformer is used to manipulate an AST, and in the process of doing so, may create new content that does not have any origin in the actual source code. A transform formation provides useful information about the origin of the new context: the name of the transformer that created it, the method (or other helpful identifier) that more specifically locates the code in the transformer that created the new content, the actual source token that immediately proceeds/follows the inserted content.
