Subject [jira] [Commented] (AXIS2-5435) Axis2 BeanUtil doesn't appear to support is/has getter forms for fields.
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2012 18:02:12 GMT


Thomas Valine commented on AXIS2-5435:

    public Boolean isValue(){
        return value;
    public boolean isValue(){
        return value;

Are considered the same signature by the compiler.   JAXB was consistent with this and now
is not.  I'm arguing that the implementations of the bean introspector and jaxb are inconsistent
with this now ( but once were consistent ).  If the compiler considers them identical, then
why shouldn't any other framework/api, etc...  The truth is the compiler treats them the same,
the javabeans spec doesn't exclude it explicitly and furthermore can be interpreted to include
it implicitly by virtue of it being written prior to autoboxing.  I further assert that the
introspector is just plain wrong, and JAXB made a bad decision to reverse it's original behaviour.

All that being said, AXIS2 is not beholden to JAXB/Introspector or any other piece of software.
 We are free to choose.  Let me put it this way.  The compiler considers the signatures the
same.  Ergo, they can never exist together in a POJO to begin with.  So there is no exposure
to failure due to confusing the two forms.  That being said, why not support this feature
other than for the reasons that A) someone else doesn't and B) it's more work?

Give me a compelling argument why not to support it and I will tip my hat to you.

Now, I do prefer one outcome over the other.  But you do need to choose.  Can you please adjudicate
a concrete course of action?

Is this fix?  fix in next release?  will not fix?
