Known Indirect Subclasses
||Defines a structured graph of objects that can be used to represent query.
This interface is designed for plugins to consume
(call its methods).
@PublicApi can expect
that programs compiled against a given version will remain binary compatible with later versions of the
@PublicApi as per each product's API policy as long as the client does not implement/extend
@PublicApi interfaces or classes (refer to each product's API policy for the exact
guarantee---usually binary compatibility is guaranteed at least across minor versions).
interfaces and classes are not designed to be implemented or extended by clients,
we may perform certain types of binary-incompatible changes to these classes and interfaces, but these will not
affect well-behaved clients that do not extend/implement these types (in general, only classes and interfaces
are safe to extend/implement).
The representation of a query.
- the sorting portion of the search which can be any number of
SearchSorts that will make up the full order by clause. Null indicates that
no order by clause has been entered and we will not sort the query, empty sorts will cause the default
sorts to be used.
- the original query string that the user inputted into the system. If not provided, will return null.
- the main clause of the search which can be any number of nested clauses that will make up the full
search query. Null indicates that no where clause is available and all issues should be returned.
