Class SourceReference

  • public class SourceReference
    extends AbstractReference
    This class describes the source side of a property mapping.

    It contains the source parameter, and all individual (nested) property entries. So consider the following mapping method:

     @Mapping(target = "propC", source = "in.propA.propB")
     TypeB mappingMethod(TypeA in);
    • parameter will describe in
    • propertyEntries[0] will describe propA
    • propertyEntries[1] will describe propB
    After building, AbstractReference.isValid() will return true when no problems are detected during building.
