Type does have a field name. As far as I understand that would be the Simple Name of the type. There is no getter for that field.
My use case is this:
I do have a java class and want to check if there is an annotation like javax.persistence.Entity. The class file has the import:
qdox is thus not able to resolve the fully qualified name, since it does not have access to that sources.
Now I know that the full class name is javax.persistence.Entity, and I assume the class to have no compile errors. So I can check the imports myself. However if I do getValue, it first tries to resolve it which always fails and takes something like 16 ms. Its by far the slowest part (it tries to load the class?) in a performance critical part of my project.
With getSimpleName though I could check the imports myself and save some time.
