Subject [jira] [Created] (WW-4203) Allow disabling xwork creating null objects on a property level
Date Tue, 17 Sep 2013 19:54:53 GMT
Jasper Rosenberg created WW-4203:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Allow disabling xwork creating null objects on a property level
                 Key: WW-4203
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WW-4203
             Project: Struts 2
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Core Interceptors
    Affects Versions: 2.3.15.2, 2.3.15.1
            Reporter: Jasper Rosenberg
            Priority: Minor


Currently, the ParametersInterceptor sets: ReflectionContextState.setCreatingNullObjects(contextMap,
true)

This is great for parameters like "person.name=Phil" since it will create the Person object
for you and then set the name.  

However, sometimes you have a converter for a property that will set it as a whole, and you
want to make sure that an empty object is never created.  For example, "person=6", where the
Person is set by looking it up by id.  Currently, if someone messed with the url and made
it "person[x]=6", XWork would end up creating an empty Person object.  (Something along these
lines happened to us and I was looking for a clean way to tell XWork to not allow it)

Perhaps the TypeConversion annotation could be extended to support this as an additional flag.
