Subject Re: Am I missing something really simple? Way to avoid adding all props in a map if I decide to add one extra collection to pojo
Date Tue, 18 Nov 2008 16:22:50 GMT
I sent this tot he wrong list before, so I'm resending it. I think it
would be a huge plus for ibatis. I don't mind digging into the source
code... would it be a really tough fix? To modify result maps to allow
them being based on result classes? Has this been brought up before.
Just curious.

To sum up if you don't read the original email - I can easily get this
back in one query and notice how I don't need every property mapped.
(The current way, you need an Address map of every property and and
Associate with every property, when all I want to do is map up the
column names directly to the objects)

 <!-- populated all properties on the BusinessEntity class if you can,
without mapping them !!!! --->
<resultMap id="beResult" class="BusinessEntity" groupBy="businessEntityID">
      <!-- directly map *** resultClasses not maps !  ***--->
    <result property="associates" resultClass="BusinessEntity"/>
     <result property="address" resultClass="Address"/>

BusinessEntity {
   String name;
   String abbreviation;
   Integer id;
   Address address
   List<Associate> associates
