Method Detail


public java.lang.Object convertInbound(java.lang.Class<?> paramType,
                                       InboundVariable data)
                                throws ConversionException
Description copied from interface: Converter
Attempt to coerce the data from a string to an Object. If anything goes wrong with inbound conversion then we generally throw an exception because we are converting data from the untrusted Internet so we take the assumption that anything wrong is someone hacking.

Specified by:
convertInbound in interface Converter
convertInbound in class BasicObjectConverter
paramType - The type to convert to
data - The data to convert
The converted data, or null if the conversion was not possible
ConversionException - If the conversion failed for some reason


public java.util.Map<java.lang.String,Property> getPropertyMapFromClass(java.lang.Class<?> paramType,
                                                                        boolean readRequired,
                                                                        boolean writeRequired)
                                                                 throws ConversionException
Description copied from interface: NamedConverter
Get a map of property names to implementations of Property.

HibernateBeanConverter (and maybe others) may want to provide alternate versions of bean.getClass(), and we may wish to fake or hide properties in some cases.

If you have a real object to investigate then it is probably better to call NamedConverter.getPropertyMapFromObject(Object, boolean, boolean) because that version can take into account extra runtime type info.

Specified by:
getPropertyMapFromClass in interface NamedConverter
getPropertyMapFromClass in class BeanConverter
paramType - The class to find bean info from
readRequired - The properties returned must be readable
writeRequired - The properties returned must be writable
An array of PropertyDescriptors describing the beans properties
ConversionException - If the introspection fails
