Subject [jira] [Commented] (FELIX-5614) Make isDTOType(Class<?> cls) publicly available
Date Tue, 18 Apr 2017 23:01:41 GMT

David Leangen commented on FELIX-5614:
--------------------------------------

Thank you, [~bosschaert]!

Sure, that would work. Or what about simply the package: org.apache.felix.converter? Or perhaps
org.apache.felix.converter.util? Whatever name you are ok with, I think it will be fine. I
am ok with embedding and not exporting/importing, but would you mind helping me out? I'm not
used to working with Maven, so I'm not sure how to embed it. :-)

I was kinda seeing this as an additional "feature" that the Felix implementation could provide,
so I had in mind making the package public, but I don't see why embedding would work.

In any case, thanks a lot for making this happen. :-)

> In ConvertingImpl, which a (bundle private) implementation class, there is a (class private)
method: isDTOType(Class<?> cls)
> Since this is a rule based on the definition of a DTO in the spec, it would be nice to
make this test somehow available publicly for general use (including by other bundles).
> It tedious for each user of the API to write their own test if an authoritative test
is already available.
> For my particular use case, the Schematizer needs to test a class to determine whether
or not it is a DTO in order to know how to handle it. Having the test available (without having
to copy over the code from the Converter) would be quite useful..
