Unbounded type variables are pretty-printed with Object as type bound

Issue #301 resolved
Jesper Öqvist created an issue

ExtendJ 8.1.1

The following input does not pretty-print correctly:

class Test<T> {

Expected result: The pretty-printed output should be identical to the input.

Actual result: An explicit type bound is added to the type variable T:

class Test<T extends java.lang.Object> {

  1. Jesper Öqvist reporter

    This issue is caused by a rewrite that adds the java.lang.Object bound to any TypeVariable that does not have an explicit type bound.

    From java5/frontend/GenericTypeVariables.jrag:

      // Set java.lang.Object as the type bound if a type variable has no
      // explicit type bound.
      rewrite TypeVariable {
        when (getNumTypeBound() == 0)
        to TypeVariable {
          return new TypeVariable(
              new Modifiers(),
              new List<BodyDecl>(),
              new List<Access>(new TypeAccess("java.lang", "Object")));

    Remove TypeVariable rewrite

    Removed a JastAdd rewrite that normalized the TypeBound list child of TypeVariable nodes.

    Renamed TypeVariable.TypeBound to TypeVariable.Bound.

    Added attributes to provide the previous normalized view of the type bounds.

    fixes #301 (bitbucket)
