Interface Summary
ExpressionTransformer Provides a way to transform expressions

Class Summary
AnnotationConstantExpression Represents an annotation "constant" that may appear in annotation attributes (mainly used as a marker).
ArgumentListExpression Represents one or more arguments being passed into a method
ArrayExpression Represents an array object construction either using a fixed size or an initializer expression
AttributeExpression Represents an attribute access (accessing the field of a class) such as the expression "foo.
BinaryExpression Represents two expressions and an operation
BooleanExpression Represents a boolean expression
CastExpression Represents a type cast expression
ClassExpression Represents access to a Java/Groovy class in an expression, such as when invoking a static method or accessing a static type
ClosureExpression Represents a closure creation expression such as { statement; } or { i : statement; } or { i, x, String y: statement }
ClosureListExpression This class rerpresents a list of expressions used to create closures.
ConstantExpression Represents a constant expression such as null, true, false
ConstructorCallExpression A constructor call
DeclarationExpression Represents a local variable name declaration, an expression like "def foo" or with type "String foo".
ElvisOperatorExpression Represents a short ternary expression x ?
EmptyExpression This class is a place holder for an empty expression.
Expression Represents a base class for expressions which evaluate as an object
FieldExpression Represents a field access such as the expression "".
GStringExpression Represents a String expression which contains embedded values inside it such as "hello there ${user} how are you" which is expanded lazily
ListExpression Represents a list expression [1, 2, 3] which creates a mutable List
MapEntryExpression Represents an entry inside a map expression such as 1 : 2.
MapExpression Represents a map expression [1 : 2, "a" : "b", x : y] which creates a mutable Map
MethodCallExpression A method call on an object or class

NamedArgumentListExpression Represents one or more arguments being passed into a method by name
PostfixExpression Represents a postfix expression like foo++ or bar++
PrefixExpression Represents a prefix expression like ++foo or --bar
PropertyExpression Represents a property access such as the expression "".
RangeExpression Represents a range expression such as for iterating.
RegexExpression Represents a regular expression of the form ~ which creates a regular expression.
SpreadExpression Represents a spread expression *x in the list expression [1, *x, 2].
SpreadMapExpression Represents a spread map expression *:m in the map expression [1, *:m, 2, "c":100] or in the method invoke expression func(1, *:m, 2, "c":100).
StaticMethodCallExpression A static method call on a class
TernaryExpression Represents a ternary expression (booleanExpression) ?
TupleExpression Represents a tuple expression {1, 2, 3} which creates an immutable List
VariableExpression Represents a local variable name, the simplest form of expression. e.g.
