Scala: "val" as identifier possible? Linking to java library needs it [duplicate]

Posted by: admin December 28, 2021 Leave a comment

Questions:

In my scala code, I’m using a java library which defines an object with a public attribute called “val”:

public class XYZ {
    public int val=...
}

Is there a way to get this attribute in scala?

Answers:

You can use backticks. They remove the reserved status of any Scala keyword (or symbol).

val foo = new XYZ
foo.`val`

See the Scala Interoperability FAQ.
