Subject Re: A plan for 5.3 / 5.4
Date Tue, 08 Feb 2011 21:33:50 GMT
Javassist vs. Plastic vs. ComponentClassTransformWorker

Imagine if you could contribute a "classic"
ComponentClassTransformWorker or some new interface for working with a
Plastic class, both to the same service:
ComponentClassTransformWorker.  The "classic" style would be
transformed, via TypeCoercer, to the new form.  And, of course, we'd
make that work for all service configurations.  That's my plan,
anyway.  Configurations should, instead of complaining that provided
types are bad, attempt to coerce first.

I think the new interface will look more like:

public interface ComponentClassTransformer
{
  void transformClass(PlasticClass componentClass, MutableComponentModel model);
}
