Subject [jira] [Created] (GROOVY-7957) Allow static compilation of builders that implement methodMissing / propertyMissing
Date Tue, 04 Oct 2016 14:29:20 GMT
Graeme Rocher created GROOVY-7957:
-------------------------------------

             Summary: Allow static compilation of builders that implement methodMissing /
propertyMissing
                 Key: GROOVY-7957
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GROOVY-7957
             Project: Groovy
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: GEP
            Reporter: Graeme Rocher


Similar to Scala's {{Dynamic}} http://www.scala-lang.org/api/current/index.html#scala.Dynamic

We should be able to write builders that are usable from statically compiled code. To achieve
this I recommend the following:

{code}
// if the object implements methodMissing dispatch to it
foo.bar("blah")      ~~> foo.methodMissing("bar", "blah")
// if the object implements propertyMissing dispatch to it
foo.var1           ~~> foo.propertyMissing("var1")
// if the object implements propertyMissing dispatch to it
foo.var1 = 10      ~~> foo.propertyMissing("var1", 10)
{code}

When combined with GROOVY-7956 it would then be possibly to fully implement builders that
are compatible with {{@CompileStatic}} and certain existing builders could be enhanced to
take advantage of this feature {{JsonBuilder}}, {{MarkupBuilder}} etc.
