Enum Class Diagnostic.Kind
- All Implemented Interfaces:
- Enclosing interface:
public static enum Diagnostic.Kind extends Enum<Diagnostic.Kind>
Kinds of diagnostics, for example, error or warning. The kind of a diagnostic can be used to determine how the diagnostic should be presented to the user. For example, errors might be colored red or prefixed with the word "Error", while warnings might be colored yellow or prefixed with the word "Warning". There is no requirement that the Kind should imply any inherent semantic meaning to the message of the diagnostic: for example, a tool might provide an option to report all warnings as errors.
