clang-format: Support the Java 8 'default' method modifier

Authored by lhchavez on Dec 2 2016, 5:02 PM.



Java 8 introduced the use of using the 'default' keyword as modifier in
interface method declarations[1]. Previously it was being parsed as
being part of a label, which put the parser into a very weird state it
could not get out of.

This change adds support for 'default' by treating it as a normal
identifier in Java when the parser is expecting a declaration.

Looks good, but I I want to make sure that someone else more familiar with this is ok with it too. Thanks.

Gentle ping?

I know nothing about the C++ code. I only know the git-clang-format script.

Same as below.


Change the order here. I.e.

if (Style.Language == FormatStyle::LK_Java && Line->MustBeDeclaration)

I think then you almost don't even need the comment.


Is there a test case that hits this codepath? IIUC, it would need to have a "default" of a declaration that's not at the start of the line.

Looks good. Thank you!

This revision is now accepted and ready to land.Dec 13 2016, 10:52 PM

While reviewing old revisions either not landed or unreviewed I stumbled across this accepted review. Looking at the current code I think its not needed anymore. Perhaps if we merge your test in with the current trunk we can determine if this is still needed
