[jira] Commented: (LANG-332) EqualsBuilder to alternatively use method properties

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-332?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12677909#action_12677909 ]

Joerg Schaible commented on LANG-332:

I am quite sure, that we break a lot of code if we change the behavior of this method. However, it would be really nice if we had both - ReflectionEqualsBuilder and JavaBeanEqualsBuilder. It simply depends on the situation where the functionality is used.

> While it is very nice reflection can be used to build a nice equals method, the strategy to focus on private properties is non-negotiable. This strategy is incompatible with CGLIB proxies which rely on method invocations to delegate to the properties of the inner target. I would prefer a switch to dynamically invoke public get* methods over direct property access.
