Subject [jira] [Commented] (CAMEL-10144) Salesforce keeps breaking backward compatibility by adding fields to older API versions
Date Thu, 14 Jul 2016 02:40:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CAMEL-10144?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15376215#comment-15376215
] 

Dhiraj Bokde commented on CAMEL-10144:
--------------------------------------

This is a generic problem with Salesforce, so the solution is to follow the REST principle
of ignoring unknown fields altogether. This behaviour will be common to JSON and XML and will
avoid future issues where running code breaks in production because Salesforce decided to
add fields from new APIs in responses to older API versions.

> Salesforce adds fields to org.apache.camel.component.salesforce.api.dto.RestResources
even after an API has been released. This needs to be handled in the component by ignoring
unknown properties for that type. 
> XStream doesn't support doing this for an single DTO, but it can be done for all types
by using XStream.ignoreUknownProperties(). It will make it ignore all unknown properties for
all inbuilt DTOs as wells user generated ones. But since the XML payload is less popular,
hopefully this behavior won't be an issue.
