Subject Re: Inherited getter and inline parameter map => NullPointerException
Date Thu, 15 May 2008 21:52:08 GMT
Generics should work fine.  I haven't read this whole thread about the
inheritance yet, but generics such as this should work without problems, as
long as PK is a simple type, *OR*, you create a custom type handler for
whatever you're using for the PK.

   public interface BaseDomain<PK extends Serializable>
     public PK getCodigo();

To Java, in this case, PK will basically always be a Serializable as far as
the reflection API is concerned.  So all you need to do is be explicit when
defining your map to this property.

<parameter property="codigo" javaType="string" .../>
<result property="codigo" javaType="string" .../>


As for the problem this thread describes, I suggest writing that unit test
you were talking about so that we can better understand the problem and
debug it if necessary.
