If you want to automatically generate getters and setters for your Java JavaBean classes, Project Lombok has some annotations that you can use.
This is an excerpt from the Scala Cookbook (partially modified for the internet). This is Recipe 17.6, “How to create JavaBeans in Scala (to interact with Java libraries).”
You need to interact with a Java class or library that accepts only classes that conform to the JavaBean specification.
@BeanProperty annotation on your fields, also making sure you declare each field as a
@BeanProperty annotation can be used on fields in a Scala class constructor:
This is an excerpt from the Scala Cookbook (partially modified for the internet). This is Recipe 17.4, “How to use the Spring Framework in Scala.”
You want to use the Java Spring Framework library in your Scala application.
In my experience, the only real changes in using the Spring Framework in Scala applications involve how you cast the objects you instantiate from your Spring application context file, and that’s only because the casting process is different between Scala and Java.
This is an excerpt from the Scala Cookbook (partially modified for the internet). This is Recipe 17.3, “How to use @SerialVersionUID and other Scala annotations.”
You want to specify that a class is serializable, and set the
serialVersionUID. More generally, you want to know the syntax for using annotations in your Scala code, and know which annotations are available.
Use the Scala
@SerialVersionUID annotation while also having your class extend the
Scala JavaBean FAQ: How do I create the Scala equivalent of a JavaBean in Java (a Scala JavaBean)?
There are times when you're working with Scala where backwards compatibility with Java and JavaBeans is required. I ran into this recently with the Java Snakeyaml library (see my Scala YAML parsing with Snakeyaml tutorial).
Summary: A Scala YAML parsing example using the Snakeyaml parser.
If you need some Scala YAML parsing examples using Snakeyaml parser, you've come to the right place. I just worked through some Snakeyaml issues related to Scala, in particular converting YAML to JavaBean classes written in Scala, so I thought I'd share the source code here.
