The class org.apache.camel.dataformat.bindy.FormatFactory is a utility class which supports a factory-pattern.
According to the factory-pattern this should not be a utility-class but it should be a class that can be instantiated.
This class should implement an interface or extend an abstract class.
Maybe we should make a factory per Format and choose amongst the following solutions:
- let each formatter answer the question about being able to format for certain formating-options (based on type and optionally the pattern for all "numeric" format factories);
- put all formatters in a hashmap with the type as a key.
With this last solution all the "numeric" format factory should decide which format to return (e.g. BytePatternFormat or ByteFormat based on the pattern being empty or not)
