Subject [jira] Commented: (BEANUTILS-315) Converter for XML Schema 'dateTime' type
Date Tue, 20 May 2008 20:06:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BEANUTILS-315?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12598441#action_12598441

Niall Pemberton commented on BEANUTILS-315:
-------------------------------------------

The next planned release for BeanUtils is 1.8.0, but that is targetted at JDK 1.3 and since
this converter uses java.util.regex.Pattern and therefore requires JDK 1.4 then it will have
to wait until after that.

Also given that the 1.8.0 release hasn't yet happened in over a year then I'm not even sure
that there will ever be another release after that - so the following comment may be academic
anyway.

I would prefer if your implementation extended from AbstractConverter[1] - which means implementing
the following methods:

 * protected String convertToString(value)
 * protected Object convertToType(Class, value)
 * protected Class getDefaultType()

> I have developed a converter implementation that can convert XML Schema 'dateTime' (xs:dateTime)
types into java.util.Date and would like to donate it to the project.
> This Converter is being used with commons-digester successfully in one of my projects,
and a series of posts on the commons-user list led me to believe that commons-beanutils was
an appropriate place to file an enhancement request.
> A proposed implementation is forthcoming.
