  • serialize domain objects to a hashmap

    Given the following object graph, where Author has 1 to many Books...

    Author {
    String name
    Set Books
    }

    Book {
    String title
    }

    Is there an out of the box way to serialize this object graph to a HashMap
    e.g. key is a bean property name and value is the actual value
    e.g.
    [name="Joe", book[0].title="book 1", book[1].title="book 2"]

    Is there recommended approach to this?

    I know I can get to the hibernate metadata and iterate through properties etc etc. But I was hoping there would be a helper class for this. Since the databinding stuff uses this format to rebuild an object graph.... e.g. mapping a http request to domain objects...

    TIA,
    Martin
