Subject Reusing @Results annotation
Date Thu, 10 Sep 2009 15:46:30 GMT
I'm new to iBatis, starting out with version 3.  One common usage 
scenario we have is to run different queries that all return the same 
result type, sliced and diced different ways.  Using XML, this is easy 
to achieve as I can have all selects refer to the same ResultMap.  I 
can't figure out how to implement a similar approach using @Results 

Here is my first example using annotations:

public interface BundleMapper
    @Select(value="select * from bundle where bundle_id = #{id}")
        @Result(column="cust_id", property="custId"),
        @Result(column="status_dt", property="statusDt")
    Bundle selectBundle(String id);

My Bundle class contains about 30-40 fields, but I just wanted to save 
some typing so I just created two.  This approach seems to require me to 
define @Results for each select.  So if I had another method that also 
returned Bundle, I'd have to define the 40-line @Results annotation again.

Using annotations, is there any way to define an @Results mapping one 
time and then refer to it multiple times from different methods?

Also, I think it would be handy to merge XML definitions and annotation 
definitions into a single application-wide namespace, so that I could 
refer to XML definitions from annotations.  That would address the issue 
I'm discussing here.  I could define a ResultMap in XML, then refer to 
it as needed from annotations.
