Subject [jira] Created: (MAVENUPLOAD-2378) Dozer 5.0 Upload
Date Thu, 05 Mar 2009 03:07:12 GMT
Dozer 5.0 Upload

                 Key: MAVENUPLOAD-2378
             Project: Maven Upload Requests
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Matt Tierney
         Attachments: dozer-5.0-bundle.jar

Dozer is a powerful, yet simple Java Bean to Java Bean mapper that recursively copies data
from one object to another. Typically, these Java Beans will be of different complex types.

Dozer supports simple property mapping, complex type mapping, bi-directional mapping, implicit-explicit
mapping, as well as recursive mapping. This includes mapping collection attributes that also
need mapping at the element level.

Dozer not only supports mapping between attribute names, but also converting between types.
Many conversion scenarios are supported out of the box, but Dozer also allows you to specify
custom conversions via XML.

The mapper is used any time you need to take one type of Java Bean and map it to another type
of Java Bean. Most field mapping can be done automatically by Dozer using reflection, but
any custom mapping can be predescribed in XML format. Mapping is bi-directional so only one
relationship between classes needs defining. If any property names on both objects are the
same you do not even need to do any explicit property mapping for these fields.

Thanks in advance!
