Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-274) Support for multidimensional array conversion
Date Tue, 25 Jul 2006 22:08:14 GMT
    [ ] 
Henri Yandell commented on LANG-274:

Generally my thinking is either:

* If it's a small patch, then it's a good target for ArrayUtils in Lang. 
* A larger patch/framework would be a rejuvenation of commons-convert.

The last week or so of Finder has shown me that the best thing can be to kick off a Sandbox
project, watch people tear it apart, and then magically the core of what you wanted to get
into a component ends up there anywhere (DirectoryWalker and various filters in IO).

Assuming you're talking about a large patch (sounds like you are) - would you have the time
to start a thread on commons-dev about the current commons-convert, the json-lib code and
any thoughts you might have concerning a conversion component?

> Only unidimenisional array conversions are supported by ArrayUtils. I recently had the
new for this and seeing that Lang does not support the feature, I hacked it myself (please
see json-lib's <a href="">cvs</a>/<a
for reference). I think that this feature may be useful to others and that json-lib is not
the correct project for it.
> This issue is at the boundaries between lang and beanutils. Lang allows the conversion
of an unidimensional array between wrappers and primitives. BeanUtils allows conversion from
String to unidimensional arrays. As BeanUtils is more fragile then Lang I thought this was
the correct place to post the issue.
