Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-416) Import MethodUtils and ConstructorUtils from BeanUtils
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2008 17:14:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-416?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12579515#action_12579515
] 

Paul Benedict commented on LANG-416:
------------------------------------

I am not against it in principle. I was just stating that it shouldn't be done apart from
full input of the BeanUtils developers. They need to be a part of the process if you're choosing
to clone their code.

On another note, I hope that the new constructor/method util methods are not static methods.
The only static factory methods should be factory methods that select an instantiable implementation
-- one being BeanUtils. See the Abstract Toolkit pattern on the internet for this one.

> 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matching method encountered was used, but this comment seems to have been outdated).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.
