Spring Framework - GenericConverter Examples

Spring Framework 

This example shows how to create a custom GenericConverter.

package com.logicbig.example;

import org.springframework.core.convert.TypeDescriptor;
import org.springframework.core.convert.converter.GenericConverter;
import org.springframework.core.convert.support.DefaultConversionService;

import java.math.BigDecimal;
import java.util.Collections;
import java.util.Set;

public class GenericConverterExample {
public static void main (String[] args) {
DefaultConversionService service = new DefaultConversionService();
service.addConverter(new NumberToBigDecimalConverter());

BigDecimal bd = service.convert(Double.valueOf("2222.336"),
BigDecimal.class);
bd = bd.setScale(2, BigDecimal.ROUND_HALF_UP);
System.out.println(bd);
}

public static class NumberToBigDecimalConverter implements GenericConverter {

@Override
public Set<ConvertiblePair> getConvertibleTypes () {
return Collections.singleton(new ConvertiblePair(Number.class,
BigDecimal.class));
}

@Override
public Object convert (Object source, TypeDescriptor sourceType,
TypeDescriptor targetType) {
if (sourceType.getType() == BigDecimal.class) {
return source;
}

Number number = (Number) source;
return new BigDecimal(number.doubleValue());
}
}
}

Output

2222.34
