> The ReflectionToStringBuilder "reflects" on fields... I needed one that works based on
public getters().
> This is useful for example with some kind of value objects where the internal private
field structure is not really what you would want to see in a toString(), but which have a
series of getters which were exactly what was frequently required to be dumped. There is probably
other uses too (e.g. works even with a SecurityManager - that's not what I wrote it for, but
could be an advantage over the ReflectionToStringBuilder?).
> I have hacked this and will attach a (which
extends ReflectionToStringBuilder; works fine, for my use) with a GetterMethodsReflectionToStringBuilderTest
(which may need some coverage extension, but is certainly a valid basic unit test) with its
SomeTestBean. I'll attach for your consideration to integrate this.
