Method Detail

buildList

List<E> buildList(Collection<org.ofbiz.core.entity.GenericValue> gvList)
Builds a list of instances from a list of GenericValues. This method is included in the interface so that the no-op implementation can take a performance shortcut and simply return the given list. If a null list is input, then a null list will be output.

Parameters:
gvList - List of GenericValues
Returns:
List of objects.

fieldMapFrom

Map<String,Object> fieldMapFrom(E value)
Builds a FieldMap from an entity Object. The FieldMap is the data held by a GenericValue, so this basically is the reverse operation of turning an object into a GenericValue.

Parameters:
value - the Entity value
Returns:
Map of field values
