The value is * automatically wrapped in an object if it has a primitive type. * If the field is not constant, returns null. */ Object constantValue(); /** * Get the value of a constant field. * * @return the text of a Java language expression whose value * is the value of the constant. The expression uses no identifiers * other than primitive literals. If the field is * not constant, returns null. */ String constantValueExpression(); }
