Subject [jira] Created: (CAMEL-3692) badly named getter methods for type "Boolean"
Date Mon, 21 Feb 2011 12:59:38 GMT
badly named getter methods for type "Boolean"

                 Key: CAMEL-3692
             Project: Camel
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: james strachan
             Fix For: 2.7.0

Since changing loads of types from "boolean" -> "Boolean", we left many of the getter methods
using "isFoo" rather than changing them to the Java Beans compliant "getFoo". Breaking the
Java Beans specification for naming properties can cause issues with libraries and tools;
since the property is no longer introspectable or readable in any introspection based tool
(of which there are loads around).

e.g. go to camel-core/src/main/java/org/apache/camel/model/ then in your IDE search for "Boolean
is". Those isFoo methods returning Boolean should be returned isFoo. 

For completeness we could also generate an isFoo for backwards compatibility that looks like...

public boolean isFoo() { return foo != null && foo.booleanValue(); }
