Subject [beanutils] BeanFactory Proposal
Date Tue, 09 Sep 2003 04:22:02 GMT
Some time ago I opened an enhancement ticket

for a BeanFactory class.  Currently it lives in the Mapper sandbox project
as ObjectFactory but, IMHO, it really belongs in a bean oriented package
like BeanUtils.  The whole point of the class is to allow configurable
(via a Map) object creation.  You pass it a logical name, it gives you an
instance of some Object.  It takes all the pain out of dynamic object
creation and is crucial to what packages like Mapper do.

Anyways, I'd appreciate it if a BeanUtils committer would comment on this.
 As always, I'll support the code should it make it into BeanUtils (it
already has some test cases :-).
