Subject Re: queryForList not returning null
Date Wed, 13 Jul 2005 13:52:11 GMT
What I do is that I have a base class (BaseDAOSqlMap) which encapsulates all 
my data access.  In it are methods like getList(String,Object) which calls 
queryForList which allows me to define custom behavior of what getList() 
returns.   That way if the implementation for queryForList() changes (I know 
its unlikely), I have to change my code in one place.  Just a thought.
