Thread: Value Types

  1. #1

    Default Value Types

    Is there any way that value there could be a value type added for just Object, or is there a way that i could extend it? I want one step to attach some of my own object to a row that another could use.

    Default RE: Value Types

    Hi William,

    That is an excellent question. And the answer is no, not yet I'm afraid.

    The basics can be set up pretty easy I guess by implementing the ValueInterface and adding the newly created ValueObject to the list of Number, String, Integer, Date, Boolean & BigNumber.

    It's similar to the work that lies ahead to implement ValueBinary (byte[] to transfer BLOBs from one database to another)

    It is a lot of work to make sure all steps understand the values. Take a look at tracker nr 1644 for more details.

    I hope this answers your question.



    PS. I'm sure that under certain conditions, you can cheat using JavaScript and add the values anyway. The Row.add(Object) method is deprecated but still works ;-), same for public Object get(int i)...
