Subject Re: Another custom type handler issue
Date Tue, 17 May 2005 11:40:50 GMT
Do you have to use arrays? How about lists instead? iBATIS (to my
knowledge) doesn't support returning arrays. My guess is if you were
to have List<Address> addresses and List<Communication> communications
(type specification not necessary, just highlighting what its doing) -
then iBATIS would "do the right thing".
