Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-332) EqualsBuilder to alternatively use method properties
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2009 07:12:12 GMT


Joerg Schaible commented on LANG-332:

I am quite sure, that we break a lot of code if we change the behavior of this method. However,
it would be really nice if we had both - ReflectionEqualsBuilder and JavaBeanEqualsBuilder.
It simply depends on the situation where the functionality is used.

> While it is very nice reflection can be used to build a nice equals method, the strategy
to focus on private properties is non-negotiable. This strategy is incompatible with CGLIB
proxies which rely on method invocations to delegate to the properties of the inner target.
I would prefer a switch to dynamically invoke public get* methods over direct property access.
