Subject [jira] [Created] (BEANUTILS-405) DynaBean should support nested dynamic structures
Date Sat, 05 Nov 2011 14:38:51 GMT
DynaBean should support nested dynamic structures

                 Key: BEANUTILS-405
             Project: Commons BeanUtils
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: DynaBean
    Affects Versions: 1.8.3
            Reporter: Michael Vorburger

It would be useful if DynaBean would have support for "nested dynamic types", like e.g. EMF
and SDO have.

Currently simple types (or the content types of indexed or mapped types) must "be a Java language
primitive (such as int, a simple object (such as a java.lang.String), or a more complex object
whose class is defined either by the Java language".  It turns out it wouldn't be very hard
at all (I've tried and will attach a patch) to make some minor changes to relax this, and
in addition also allow the following usage:

{noformat}    	DynaProperty[] adrProps = new DynaProperty[]{
            new DynaProperty("zip", Long.class)
        BasicDynaClass adrDynaClass = new BasicDynaClass("Address", adrProps);

        DynaProperty[] empProps = new DynaProperty[]{
            new DynaProperty("address",     java.util.Map.class,  adrDynaClass),
            new DynaProperty("subordinate", java.util.List.class, DynaClass.class),
            new DynaProperty("firstName",   String.class),
            new DynaProperty("lastName",    String.class),
            new DynaProperty("mainAddress", adrDynaClass),
            new DynaProperty("boss",        DynaClass.class)
        BasicDynaClass empDynaClass = new BasicDynaClass("Employee", empProps);
        // ---
        DynaBean address = adrDynaClass.newInstance();
        address.set("zip", new Long(9016));
        DynaBean subordinate = empDynaClass.newInstance();
        subordinate.set("firstName", "Dino");
        DynaBean boss = empDynaClass.newInstance();
        boss.set("firstName", "Wilma");
        DynaBean employee = empDynaClass.newInstance();
        employee.set("firstName", "Fred");
        employee.set("lastName", "Flintstone");
        employee.set("mainAddress", address);
        employee.set("boss", boss);
        PropertyUtils.setProperty(employee, "boss.lastName", "Flintstone");
        employee.set("address", new HashMap());
        PropertyUtils.setProperty(employee, "address(home)", address);
        employee.set("subordinate", new ArrayList());
