Hello, Howard!

Why is copying the annotations from service implementation method to their  
corresponding proxy classes so problematic? I've asked this once in June,  
no answer. Is it problematic or just hard?

I've just tested this and MethodInvocation.getAnnotation() doesn't  
actually check the service implementation method. From debugging the code,  
I've found that it ends up looking at the proxy, not at the service  
implementation. Right now, the only solution is to put annotations in  
service interfaces, something which is very against OOP principles in my  
humble opinion, so I think this is a very strong downside for  
Tapestry-IoC. And I want to fix that.

I've written a test for that and it fails (at least on 5.4-alpha-22):

public class MethodAdviceTest {

	@Test
	public void MethodAdvice_getAnnotation() {
		
		RegistryBuilder builder = new RegistryBuilder();
		builder.add(TestModule.class);
		final Registry build = builder.build();
		final Service service = build.getService(Service.class);
		assert service.method("aaaa") != null;

	}

}

public interface Service {
	public String method(String string);
}

public class ServiceImpl implements Service {
	@CacheResult // from javax.cache / cache-api 0.6-SNAPSHOT
	public String method(String string) {
		return null;
	}
}

public class TestModule {

	public static void bind(ServiceBinder binder) {
		binder.bind(Service.class, ServiceImpl.class);
	}
	
	@Advise(serviceInterface = Service.class)
	public static void advise(MethodAdviceReceiver methodAdviceReceiver) {
		methodAdviceReceiver.adviseAllMethods(new TestAdvice());
	}
	
	final private static class TestAdvice implements MethodAdvice {

		/* (non-Javadoc)
		 * @see  
org.apache.tapestry5.plastic.MethodAdvice#advise(org.apache.tapestry5.plastic.MethodInvocation)
		 */
		public void advise(MethodInvocation invocation) {

			CacheResult cacheResult =  
invocation.getMethod().getAnnotation(CacheResult.class);
			if (cacheResult == null) {
				cacheResult = invocation.getAnnotation(CacheResult.class);
				if (cacheResult != null) {
					invocation.setReturnValue("Annotation found");
				}
			}
			invocation.proceed();
			
		}
		
	}
	
}
