I have to map a complex structure of Java classes which don't expose their fields through set-/get-methods in general (this is given and can't be changed).
So mapping can only be performed on a direct field access. Dozer allows individual fields to be made accessible but I haven't found a setting to make this the general behaviour. As a result I wouldn't have to map each field explicitly just for making it accessible!
Does this option exist?
- On a class level?
- On a global level?
You can set it on a class level.
<mapping> <class-a is-accessible="true">MyClass</class-a> ... </mapping>
From the Dozer XSD:
is-accessible Indicates whether Dozer bypasses getter/setter methods and accesses the field directly. This will typically be set to "false". The default value is "false". If set to "true", the getter/setter methods will NOT be invoked. You would want to set this to "true" if the field is lacking a getter or setter method.
