OT Bytecode Attributes/PlayedBy

Attribute PlayedBy


The PlayedBy attribute is a fixed-length attribute used in the attributes table of the ClassFile structure.


A role class which, or which super role class, is bound to a base class.


The name of the bound base class.


The OTRE does not use this attribute at the moment(?).


    PlayedBy {
     u2 attribute_name_index;
     u4 attribute_length;
     u2 base_class_name_index;

The items of the PlayedBy structure are as follows:

  • attribute_name_index
The constant_pool entry at that index must be a CONSTANT_Utf8_info representing the string "CallinRoleBaseBindings".
  • attribute_length
The value of the attribute_length item indicates the length of the attribute, excluding the initial six bytes.
  • base_class_name_index
The constant_pool index representing the fully qualified name of the base class, as given in the source code from which this class file was compiled.
