Subject [jira] [Commented] (BEANUTILS-425) Support customization of introspection mechanism
Date Sun, 03 Mar 2013 18:23:13 GMT


Oliver Heger commented on BEANUTILS-425:

Benedikt, this is really strange. My environment is very similar to yours (except for Java
version 1.7.0_15 and Windows 7 32Bit), but I do not see these failures. Do they also occur
if you execute only this single test class?

> So far BeanUtils can cope with properties conforming to the Java Beans specification.
In some situations it makes sense to relax this requirement and allow the detection of other
forms of get and set methods as well.
> For instance, fluent APIs have become popular. Here you have a set method which does
not return *void* and thus violates the Java Beans specification. Objects using such an API
cannot be dealt with by BeanUtils currently.
> For reasons of backwards compatibility the current behavior should remain the default.
But it would be cool if there was an option to set a custom introspection policy. The policy
would be invoked during property discovery and can decide which properties to include or not.
