----------------------------------

             Summary: Add toValue() and toEntity() methods to the Qi4j API.
                 Key: ZEST-22
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZEST-22
             Project: Zest
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Niclas Hedhman
            Assignee: Niclas Hedhman


Rickard added the support for handling Associations in Values, and we also now have the full
support of sharing super-types between Entities and Values.

So, it would make sense that if I declare the assembly;

    module.entities( Person.class );
    module.values( Person.class );

that I could do;

    Person entity = ...;
    Person value = api.toValue( Person,class, entity );

as well as the other way around;

    Person value = ...;
    Person entity = api.toEntity( Person.class, entity );

The implementation of this is fairly small and straight forward, and I have most of it in
place in my project already, but I think it really belongs in the API itself, as this would
be super-neat for Rest APIs and other work outside of UnitOfWorks.
