------------------------------------

             Summary: Create POJOPrompt as a quick way to input values for a Plain-Old Java
Object
                 Key: PIVOT-943
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-943
             Project: Pivot
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: wtk, wtk-terra
    Affects Versions: 2.1
         Environment: All
            Reporter: Roger Whitcomb
            Assignee: Roger Whitcomb
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 2.1


Often a POJO is used to hold data in a Java program.  And a Pivot Prompt can be used to input
values.  This proposed class is an extension of a plain Prompt that iterates through the accessible
fields and getter/setter methods of a POJO and generates a dynamic Prompt to display and set
the values of the given object.  This is a convenience class that encapsulates a lot of work
involved in automatically generating such an input form, including validators.

I have done a similar thing in our application, and it can be quite effective for rapidly
developing or prototyping an application.
