The MapStruct team wishes a Happy New Year to all our users out there!
To start the new year fresh, we’ve given some love to our website. While its looks only slightly changed, its inner workings have been overhauled from ground up. It’s driven by Hugo now, a static website generator written in Go which is very popular these days.
I’m more than thrilled to report that MapStruct 1.1 Final has been spotted in the wild!
We grew that puppy for almost one year since the announcement of MapStruct 1.0, so it was about time to let it go and put a final release into your hands.
Besides a plethora of bug fixes the 1.1 release adds many new features which should be very welcome to users of MapStruct 1.0:
- Nested target properties
@ValueMapping annotation for enum mappings
@Named annotation for simple string based mapping qualifiers
- Support for custom
hasXyz() methods to check the presence of source properties instead of null checks
- Extended support of
java.text.NumberFormat for Number types to String mapping
- OSGi support
- New built-in conversions around date/time type
It’s my pleasure to announce the second candidate release of MapStruct 1.1!
This release fixes several bugs discovered in the first CR but also adds some new built-in conversions around date/time types (e.g. from/to the
java.sql.* types and between
Normally, we wouldn’t add new functionality during the CR phase, but as these conversions have been contributed by community members (kudos to you!), we thought it’d be nice to put them into a release as soon as possible.
MapStruct 1.1.0.CR1 consolodates the functionality introduced in the preceeding MapStruct 1.1.0 Beta releases. A number of bugs were solved:
- Automatic generation of an iterable mapping methods where the property selection is based on a qualfier.
- Collection source getter null check to avoid NullPointExceptions.
- Missing imports for generic types in collections in generated methods.
- Removing redundant code from generated code when using nested source properties.
- Optimisation when using enum constant (using an enum constant instead of a String conversion).
- Fixing order for dependsOn.
- Fixing an issue introduced 1.1.0.Beta2 that causes problems for the @MappingTarget in combination with @InheritInverseConfiguration
It has been a while since the latest release of MapStruct. Via our mailing list, issue list and other channels we have received valuable feedback. We have tried to incorporate some of that feedback into a number of new features.
MapStruct 1.1.0.Beta2 introduces a number of popular requested features, like source presence check and nested target properties.
