Subject [jira] [Commented] (FELIX-5614) Make isDTOType(Class<?> cls) publicly available

David Bosschaert commented on FELIX-5614:
-----------------------------------------

Hi [~dleangen], injecting this rule sounds like an interesting idea, but I'm not sure what
it would look like... 

I think that what you're saying is that you want to specialize isDTO() so that it considers
a source or target class as a DTO even though it has a constructor. You can already do this
with convert(myDTOWithCtor).sourceAsDTO().to(String.class) ?

If this is not what you're thinking of, could you maybe give an example?

> 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..
