Using nested types

You are browsing legacy Javonet 1.5 (Java<>.NET bridge for Windows) documentation. Use the left side menu or click here to switch to latest Javonet 2.0 documentation. Javonet 2.0 allows you to use any module from JVM, CLR, Netcore, Python, Ruby, Perl, NodeJS on Windows, Linux and MacOs from any application created in Java, Clojure, Groovy, Kotlin, C#, F#, J#, VB.NET, Python, Perl, Ruby, JavaScript, TypeScript, C++ and GoLang

Nested types are the classes defined within other class or struct. Javonet is able to create the instance of nested type, pass nested type as Type argument, set nested type to field or property and use nested types as generic arguments for methods and classes.

To reference nested type with full namespace the name of the nested class should be prefixed with namespace, name of parent class and "+" sign. For example the "Nested" class defined above could be access using following path "TestNamespace.Container+Nested". Following examples show how to initialize and work with nested types using full namespace.
