Class CallStack

java.lang.Object
  |
  +--bsh.CallStack

public class CallStack
extends java.lang.Object

A stack of NameSpaces representing the call path. Each method invocation, for example, pushes a new NameSpace onto the stack. The top of the stack is always the current namespace of evaluation.

This is used to support the this.caller magic reference and to print script "stack traces" when evaluation errors occur.

Note: it would be awefully nice to use the java.util.Stack here. Sigh... have to stay 1.1 compatible.

Note: How can this be thread safe, you might ask? Wouldn't a thread executing various beanshell methods be mutating the callstack? Don't we need one CallStack per Thread in the interpreter? The answer is that we do. Any java.lang.Thread enters our script via an external (hard) Java reference via a This type interface, e.g. the Runnable interface implemented by This or an arbitrary interface implemented by XThis. In that case the This invokeMethod() method (called by any interface that it exposes) creates a new CallStack for each external call.

 void push(NameSpace ns)
           
 void set(int depth, NameSpace ns)
          This is kind of crazy, but used by the setNameSpace command.
 NameSpace swap(NameSpace newTop)
          Swap in the value as the new top of the stack and return the old value.
