Subject [jira] [Commented] (WW-4932) Conversion fails when generic type is an interface
Date Fri, 18 May 2018 14:36:00 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on WW-4932:

yasserzamani opened a new pull request #221:  WW-4932 honor .properties file before the generic
   I think it's better to honor .properties file (where element class has been defined strictly
by user) before the generic parametrics.

> Hi, I was asked to create this issue after exchanging some emails in the struts mailing
> I had the following problem:

> Hi,
> I am having problems populating an action variable Set by request using
> struts type conversion if the Set has the element type defined as an
> interface.
> I have a file with the following
> configuration using the class implementation:
> KeyProperty_roles=id
> CreateIfNull_roles=true
> And UserAction has the collection Set<RolesInterface>. Roles obviously
> implements RolesInterface.
> If the Set element type <RolesInterface> is deleted it works just fine.
> Am I doing something wrong or is this not possible?
> Thanks{noformat}
> And this was the response, which fixed my problem. :
> {noformat}
> I reproduced it and seems it's because it tries to instantiate a new
> element but the interface cannot being instantiated. Please see [1] to
> know why it tries to instantiate interface instead of class.
> Annotating the getRoles or setRoles method with @Element(value =
> may fix this issue. (shouldn't it be
> instead? it seems Roles is a list not element)

> You're welcome :) glad to hear this. However, I think it's better that
> Struts honor .properties file (where element class has been defined
> strictly by user) before the generic parametrics [1]. Could you please
> register an issue at [2] with title "conversion fails when generic type
> is an interface" then paste these emails contents in it's description.
> Thanks for your report!
