oracle.jbo.domain
Class TypeFactory

java.lang.Object
  extended by oracle.jbo.domain.TypeFactory

public class TypeFactory
extends java.lang.Object

Internal: Applications should not extend this class or invoke its methods.

A utility for creating immutable Domain objects.

Create a Domain object by passing a fully qualified classname and a compatable data value to a getInstance method. The classname may be a expressed as a Class or as a String.

. The data value may be an Object or a value of any of the primitive data types.

Note that for non-String data types that do not have String constructors or that throw exceptions for empty strings ("") from their constructor or valueOf() methods, this factory assumes the value to be NULL value. So for example if an attribute is of type Number and setAttribute() is called for that attribute with a "" (empty string), the value for the attribute will be set to NULL. This helps all thin-clients to share the same logic of setting NULL values and provide similar behaviour without special-casing for "" strings. This behavior can be overruled by creating a domain for the desired data-type that has a string constructor or a valueOf(String) method that could accept "" (empty string) and convert that to some default value;

Since:

                                           java.lang.Object val)
Creates an object of type clazz having the value val.

Parameters:
clazz - A fully qualified classname.
val - An object.
Returns:
An object consisting of val converted to clazz. If val is null or already of type clazz then val itself is returned.
Throws:
DataCreationException - if val is incompatable with clazz.

getInstance

public static java.lang.Object getInstance(java.lang.Class clazz,
                                           java.lang.Object val,
