Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-598) Support more data types in plugin attributes
Date Tue, 08 Apr 2014 16:04:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-598?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13963118#comment-13963118

Matt Sicker commented on LOG4J2-598:
------------------------------------

Something I think would be neat later on would be more injection support. Instead of a static
factory method, allow factory classes where the @PluginFoo annotations can be used on setters,
constructors, or fields, and then a factory (or builder) method is executed after all the
relevant objects are injected. This would of course take a lot more work than the current
method, so this is somewhat a longer term idea.

> Currently, annotating plugin factory method parameters with {{@PluginAttribute}} only
supports String types, but we use a lot of plugin attributes that could be automatically converted
to primitive types. Now I'm not suggesting something as advanced as how Camel handles parameter
injection (which does automatic non-trivial type conversion), but it would be great to support
booleans, ints, longs, etc., to simplify quite a bit of extraneous string parsing.
