Subject [jira] [Commented] (CAMEL-6511) auto-enable and detect Dozer mappings
Date Fri, 05 Jul 2013 07:25:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CAMEL-6511?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13700498#comment-13700498

james strachan commented on CAMEL-6511:
---------------------------------------

>From a tooling perspective, it'd be nice if folks could just take any project which depends
on camel-dozer and just create a file in META-INF/services/dozerMapping.xml using the Dozer
eclipse plugin and then create some mappings and they automatically show up in camel as standard
type conversions:

> I wonder if we can avoid having to explicitly configure in Spring the DozerTypeConverterLoader
class along with the explicit org.dozer.DozerBeanMapper; but instead get camel-core to auto-detect
(with META-INF/services or similar OSGi tricks) the presence of the camel-dozer library and
then just automatically create it. e.g. using a META-INF/services/..../TypeConverterLoader
file to force the lazy creation of the DozerTypeConverterLoader object.
> Then also automatically scan for all META-INF/services/dozerMapping.xml files and register
them all. 
> For more info see: 
> http://camel.apache.org/dozer-type-conversion.html
> Then it would feel like Dozer mapping files are kinda like Camel type converters; that
they are just automatically discovered and configured on the fly - if they are defined in
the convention-over-configuration way?
> e.g. given that camel-dozer is on the classpath, all that is required is you add a META-INF/services/dozer/mapping.xml
file to the classpath and hey-presto all the type conversions defined inside it are immediately
available to Camel
