public interface BeanIntrospector
Definition of an interface for components that can perform introspection on bean classes.
PropertyUtils can be used for interaction with a specific Java
class, the class's properties have to be determined. This is called
introspection and is initiated automatically on demand.
PropertyUtils does not perform introspection on its own, but
delegates this task to one or more objects implementing this interface. This
makes it possible to customize introspection which may be useful for certain
code bases using non-standard conventions for accessing properties.
void introspect(IntrospectionContext icontext) throws IntrospectionException
IntrospectionContextobject. A typical implementation has to obtain this class, determine its properties according to the rules it implements, and add them to the passed in context object.
icontext- the context object for interaction with the initiator of the introspection request
IntrospectionException- if an error occurs during introspection
