Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONFIGURATION-551) Make data type conversions extensible
Date Wed, 07 Aug 2013 19:37:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-551?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13732630#comment-13732630

Oliver Heger commented on CONFIGURATION-551:
--------------------------------------------

The effort should be limited. It is just a matter of some delegation and providing entry points
for client applications to hook in. I do not intend to do bigger changes.

> So far, a fix set of data type conversions is supported. Some are available directly
in the {{Configuration}} interface (especially for primitive and standard Java types), others
are provided by {{DataConfiguration}}. Currently, it is not easy possible for client applications
to customize type conversions or add new converters.
> I am not sure whether we should go so far to implement yet another framework with type
converters; at least not directly for version 2.0. However, there should be at least possibilities
to hook into the conversion mechanism. Ideally, I would like to have a simple facade handling
the different kinds of conversions. By providing alternative implementations, client applications
should be able to adapt type conversions or even plug in a different conversion framework,
e.g. Commons Beanutils.
