Subject [jira] Commented: (BEANUTILS-312) Expose the caches in PropertyBeanUtils so they can be controlled if needed
Date Wed, 07 May 2008 12:24:56 GMT


Aaron Zeckoski commented on BEANUTILS-312:

Ah, I did not realize binary compatibility was a requirement...
I can only see one way to handle that and that is create a FastHashMap at the points where
a FastHashMap is required doing something like:
if (! (existingMap instanceof FastHashMap)) {
existingMap = new FastHashMap(existingMap);

That is pseudo coded but you get the idea. This would also incur very little overhead (just
the check) if the legacy FastHashMap is being used but would still allow for putting in and
getting out whatever map or caching object (that implements Map) that you like.

If this is acceptable then I will recode the patch. If not, please suggest an alternative
and I will recode the patch.

> The attached patch exposes the caches in PropertyBeanUtils and sets them to be Map instead
of FastHashMap. This also involves a change to PropertyUtils (also changing FastHashMap to
Map). The patch is fairly small and was built again the trunk.
