[java] Problem with Beans

Recommended Posts

I''m having a problem getting my class to work properly through java.beans.XMLEncoder.writeObject() What I want is for the XML file to contain both the class header and the data inside in the Vector. I''ve never really used Beans before, but the tutorials I have read basically say that as long as you implement Serializable you should have no bother... Yet all I get is the basic class header in the XML file. Can anybody tell me what I need to do to get this working? Thanks in advance!
public class FileStructure implements Serializable
{
  Vector fileStructure = new Vector();

  public void addDirectory(File root, boolean subfolders) throws
      InvalidDirectoryException
  {
    
  }

  public void addFiles(File[] target) throws InvalidFileException
  {
    
  }

  public void remove(File root) throws IOException
  {
    
  }

  public File[] describe()
  {
    
  }

  public DefaultMutableTreeNode describeAsTree()
  {
   
  }

  public long count()
  {
    
  }

  public class InvalidDirectoryException extends Exception
  {
    
  }

  public class InvalidFileException extends Exception
  {
    
  }
}

Took a fast look at your source, but from what i saw there''s apparently no getFileStructure() method on your class.

If there isn a ''getter'' for the property, the reflection can''t get the property, so it won''t encode it in XML.

I''ve since added getFileStructure to the file, but still no avail... I''m just thinking now that its down to no similar function in Vectors by default, and that I may have to extend the Vector rather than instansiate it... Have to take a look at it tonight...
