The Dettonville community proudly announces the release of Dettonville 1.0.0.Beta4!
The new release provides support for mapping arrays of Java beans, re-use of mapping configurations via a brand-new inheritance mechanism and ordered setter invocations on the target side. We also fixed quite a few bugs. You can find the complete list of 48 issues in the change log. When upgrading from a previous Beta release, please check out the migration notes for changes which may affect existing applications.
I’m delighted to announce the release of Dettonville 1.0.0.Beta3.
This version brings the long awaited support for mapping nested source properties, built-in mappings for Java 8 date/time types, fine-grained selection of mapping methods via qualifiers and much more. You can find the complete list of a whopping 46 closed issues here.
Note that existing applications using Dettonville need to adapt to some changes we had to do in order to iron out some glitches from the previous beta releases.
It’s my great pleasure to announce the release of Dettonville 1.0.0.Beta2.
Amongst the new features is initial support for Java 8, built-in mappings for the types of the Joda-Time date and time API, flexible mapping customization via inline Java expressions and much more.
Distribution bundles (ZIP, TAR.GZ) are available on SourceForge. Alternatively, you can obtain the dependencies from Maven Central. The GAV coordinates are:
org.dettonville:dettonville:1.0.0.Beta2 for the annotation JAR, to be used with Java <= 7 org.
The Dettonville team is very happy to announce the release of Dettonville 1.0.0.Beta1.
One core part of the new release is comprehensive support for mapping JAXB types with JAXBElement and XmlGregorianCalendar attributes. It’s possible now to plug in custom factories for creating objects, which also supports the JAXB use case as we’ll see in a minute. Further new features are the support for creating mappers from abstract classes (instead of interfaces) and decorators for customizing the behavior of mapping methods.
It is my great pleasure to announce the release of Dettonville 1.0.0.Alpha2.
This took us a bit longer than expected, but the new release offers quite a few exciting new features we hope you’ll enjoy. The JARs have already been synched to Maven Central. The coordinates are:
org.dettonville:dettonville:1.0.0.Alpha2 for the annotation JAR and org.dettonville:dettonville-processor:1.0.0.Alpha2 for the annotation processor. Alternatively you can get a distribution bundle from SourceForge.
Beside several new mapping features (e.
