Subject [jira] [Commented] (TORQUE-147) Database objects should not need to inherit from BaseObject
Date Wed, 03 Aug 2011 15:16:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TORQUE-147?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13078792#comment-13078792

CG Monroe commented on TORQUE-147:

(Sorry for the direct torque-dev response.. re-doing it for the Jira issue).

Moving methods to generated / changing interface +1 from me.

Get/SetByName, et. al.

IMHO, it would be *NICE* to have an interface that covers these.  A use case for this would
be common normalization or lookup functions.  E.g., a function with a record object and column
name as parameters that does something common to multiple table and columns, like scanning
for profanity or normalizing case in across multiple tables that contains title and description

Perhaps this could be based on the java LinkedHashMap object methods or the org.apache.commons.collections.OrderedMap
interface?  With the key being the column name.  Then allow users the choice of simple persistent
objects or collection based persistent objects (which is a superset of the simple objects).

I think you're right about getTableMap. That is Torque specific (but needed).  If someone
needs it inside a function using an interface parameter, they can always use the baseObject
or cast

> Currently it is an error if database objects do not inherit from BaseObject. This makes
embedding of Torque objects in other frameworks very difficult, because it does not allow
to choose an own parent to inherit from.
> The minimum requirement would be that it is not required any more that database objects
inherit from BaseObject.
> Ideally BaseObject dies and the base objects inherit directly from java.lang.object.
