Description David Strupl 2002-01-29 13:05:57 UTC


is used to find property editor for given property. The implementation of this
method is not flexible enough for our needs. 

1. from module be able to add mapping declaratively (in XML)
2. customize the mappings as a user
3. be able to return more results (Collection) for a type.
4. fallback to the original findEditor method in case no editor is found using
the alternative approach (backward compatibility)

Solution: use XML layer to store the mappings

It seems that there already is a solution for this suggested as part
of issue 22422 together with a patch that just needs to be applied. I
am closing this in favor of that issue.
