Class InvalidElementType

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    StaticStructure, Structure,

    public class InvalidElementType
    extends Error
    implements, StaticStructure
    The InvalidElementType exception indicates that the server was unable to fulfil the request because an element of a specific type cannot be a member of particular group.

    This exception could be reported, for example, if an attempt is made to put an element into the wrong type of container.


    • Attempt to put a virtual machine into a folder that can only contain hosts.
    • Attempt to attach a SCSI virtual disk to an IDE port.
    • A parameter has a value that is not of the expected type. The InvalidArgument exception would be used instead.

        public com.vmware.vapi.bindings.type.ErrorType _getType()
        Description copied from interface: StaticStructure
        WARNING: Internal method, subject to change in future versions. Returns StructType instance representing the static bindings type for this Structure.

      • _getDataValue

        public StructValue _getDataValue()
        Description copied from interface: Structure
        Returns this Structure represented in the dynamic DataValue model.

        Attempts to change the returned StructValue representation are not required to change the state of this structure. Actually the behavior is implementation dependent and is unspecified. In general the returned value shouldn't be changed.

      • _validate

        public void _validate()
        Description copied from interface: StaticStructure
        Validates the state of the discriminated unions and HasFieldsOf restrictions (if any) in this Java language binding Structure.

        More precisely, for each union: given value of the discriminant/tag field (@UnionTag in the IDL) of an union in this structure, validates that:

      • all fields of the union required for that value of the discriminant are set
      • fields of the union that are not allowed for that value of the discriminant are not set
      • any other fields of the structure (not participating in the union) do not affect the validation result
