Type: New Feature
Affects Version/s: None
Fix Version/s: 2.1
Rickard added the support for handling Associations in Values, and we also now have the full support of sharing super-types between Entities and Values.
So, it would make sense that if I declare the assembly;
module.entities( Person.class );
module.values( Person.class );
that I could do;
Person entity = ...;
Person value = api.toValue( Person,class, entity );
as well as the other way around;
Person value = ...;
Person entity = api.toEntity( Person.class, entity );
The implementation of this is fairly small and straight forward, and I have most of it in place in my project already, but I think it really belongs in the API itself, as this would be super-neat for Rest APIs and other work outside of UnitOfWorks.
