Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-416) Import MethodUtils and ConstructorUtils from BeanUtils
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2008 12:29:25 GMT


Stephen Colebourne commented on LANG-416:

Would be worth looking at the sandbox project [reflect] which tackled this IIRC.

Certainly, if [reflect] isn't to exist then [lang] is the best alternate home.

> ------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: LANG-416
>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons Lang
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 2.4
>            Reporter: Matt Benson
>             Fix For: 3.0
> Mentioned on the mailing list...  After we release 2.4 I'd like to:
> - import ConstructorUtils
> - make CU.getMatchingAccessibleConstructor() public
> - import MethodUtils
> - factor best-match calculation code out of MethodUtils into abstract superclass MemberUtils,
make ConstructorUtils extend MemberUtils and use the same code (be on the lookout for ways
to improve best-match calcs; my original description was based on javadoc that said the first
matching method encountered was used, but this comment seems to have been outdated). 
> - merge any other duplicate (or near-duplicate) code from CU/MethodU into MemberU and
remove anything else that doesn't make sense in the context of Lang.
