Class GiftRegistryGenericAttributeNodeHandler

  • java.lang.Object
  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class GiftRegistryGenericAttributeNodeHandler
    extends java.lang.Object
    implements NodeHandler
    This class handles nodes that represent generic attributes, which are used in a gift registry value object. A generic attribute is a value that can be accessed only by a generic getter BaseVO#get and a generic setter BaseVO#set. In an inbound message, if a tag has attribute "type", then the tag represents a generic attribute. The specified type will be the type of the attribute. For example, suppose there is a tag as follows:
                            <NewData type="java.lang.String">
    Then, we know the <samp>NewData</samp> is a generic attribute in the GiftRegistryVO. Therefore, we can access it by calling get("NewData"), and we can also set it to its container by calling set("NewData", "newValue"). The generic attribute can be either an atomic type, or a type that supports default constructor.
