Subject [jira] Commented: (GRFT-101) Allow developer to supply "newInstace" method in subclass of ObjectConverterImpl
Date Thu, 14 Sep 2006 11:29:23 GMT
    [ ] 
Dan Connelly commented on GRFT-101:

Also, since collection may be an immutable (where collection cannot be set in an object, but
items in the existing collection can be aded and removed), a similar hook in ObjectConverterImpl
is needed to support an escape from having ReflectionUtils attempt to forace a NEW collection
instance into the object:

	protected void setCollection(Object object, String fieldName, ManageableCollection collection)
		ReflectionUtils.setNestedProperty(object, fieldName, collection);

Then change collection setter in retrieveCollectionField method to:

		this.setCollection(object, collectionDescriptor.getFieldName(), collection);

> I used a simple change in ObjectConverterImpl.   This allows me to use a Factory class
(in place of JavaBean constructors) in my object model.
> I added the following method to ObjectConverterImpl.:
>    protected Object newInstance(String className) {
>        return ReflectionUtils.newInstance(className);
>    }
> Elsewhere in ObjectConverterImpl, it will now invoke
>            this.newInstance(classDescriptor.getClassName());
> every where that is previously invoked
>            ReflectionUtils.newInstance(classDescriptor.getClassName());
> Now I can over-ride the newInstance method in MyObjectConverterImpl (which subclasses
ObjectConverterImpl).   This allows me to construct objects for my model using its Factory
