Method Detail

matches

boolean matches(java.lang.reflect.Method method,
                java.lang.Class targetClass,
                boolean hasIntroductions)
Perform static checking whether the given method matches. This may be invoked instead of the 2-arg MethodMatcher.matches(java.lang.reflect.Method, Class) method if the caller supports the extended IntroductionAwareMethodMatcher interface.

Parameters:
method - the candidate method
targetClass - the target class (may be null, in which case the candidate class must be taken to be the method's declaring class)
hasIntroductions - true if the object on whose behalf we are asking is the subject on one or more introductions; false otherwise
Returns:
whether or not this method matches statically
