Kotlin Hands-On Labs



package com.example.demokotlin

import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication
import org.springframework.boot.runApplication
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.GetMapping
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RestController

class DemoKotlinApplication

fun main(args : Array<String>) {

class MessageResource {
fun index(): List<Message> = listOf(
Message("1", "Hello!"),
Message("2", "Bonjour!"),
Message("3", "Privet!"),

data class Message(val id: String?, val text: String)
  1. 代码文件保存为.kt后缀的文件
  2. 与java相同有包路径定义,导入相关类等
  3. 类定义与java相同使用class关键字
  4. 方法定义使用fun关键字,参数则是名称在前类型在后,使用冒号隔开
  5. 不需要导入即可使用标准包中类的方法
  6. 可以使用data关键字来修饰类定义,表明是数据类,该类不需要实体,即没有java的getter和setter等一系列方法


这个方法定义在Kotlin标准库 kotlin-stdlib的Collections.kt中

package kotlin.collections


 * Returns a new read-only list of given elements. The returned list is serializable (JVM).
 * @sample samples.collections.Collections.Lists.readOnlyList
public fun <T> listOf(vararg elements: T): List<T> = if (elements.size > 0) elements.asList() else emptyList()
