Type: New Feature
Affects Version/s: 5.0
Fix Version/s: 5.0.7
It seems to me we could leverage the existing component event hierarchy to allow for tightly customized input translation and parsing.
I would propose three component events:
"toclient" : corresponds to Translator.toClient(). Passed an object as the context (possibly null), result must be a String.
"parseclient": corresponds to Translator.parseClient(). Passed a string as the context, returns an object or throws ValidationException.
"validate": corresponds to Validator.validateInput(). Passed an object (provided by the translator). No return value. May throw ValidationException.
We'll have to come up with a better mechanism for allowing event handler methods to throw an exception. Currently, I suspect, that you would get Javassist compile errors if you try!
