While we pride ourselves on providing a comprehensive and detailed documentation, the MapStruct reference guide grew out of form a bit over time. To name just one issue, readability wasn’t great on smaller screen sizes.
All that’s history now, the reference guide has been converted into the AsciiDoc format, which makes the documentation much easier to maintain and allows for several publishing options using the fantastic AsciiDoctor tool.
The guide is provided in two formats now: HTML and as PDF.
It’s with great pleasure and excitement that I announce the final release of MapStruct 1.0!
MapStruct is a source code generator for efficient, type-safe mappings between Java bean types, based on annotated interface definitions. It works in your command line builds (e.g. via Maven or Gradle) as well as your favourite IDE. The advantages of this approach are manifold:
Great performance: Plain method invocations only, no use of reflection Compile-time type safety: Only objects and attributes actually mapping to each other can be mapped, no accidental mapping of an order entity into a customer DTO etc.
It is my pleasure to announce the second candidate release of MapStruct 1.0!
With this release, we’re fixing several bugs that showed up after our first candidate release. But we also received some great new feature contributions from the community that we wanted to include in our 1.0 release, so we decided to build this second candidate release before calling it a final. Highlights of this release are:
Configure package and class name for the generated mapper implementations.
I am very happy to announce the first candidate release of MapStruct 1.0!
As we are approach MapStruct 1.0, this release is primarily focused on ironing out remaining glitches and fixing bugs. But there are also some new features:
A new SPI for discovering property accessors not adhering to the JavaBeans convention The decorator feature can now also be used with Spring Support for before- and after-mapping lifecycle hooks The complete list of 24 closed issues can be found in the change log.
The MapStruct community proudly announces the release of MapStruct 1.0.0.Beta4!
The new release provides support for mapping arrays of Java beans, re-use of mapping configurations via a brand-new inheritance mechanism and ordered setter invocations on the target side. We also fixed quite a few bugs. You can find the complete list of 48 issues in the change log. When upgrading from a previous Beta release, please check out the migration notes for changes which may affect existing applications.
