Description Jaroslav Tulach 2015-02-22 12:25:20 UTC
In certain situations it would be valuable to chain calls to setters in class generated by @Model annotation in builder-like style:

@Model(className="C", properties={
  @Property(name="a", type=String.class),
  @Property(name="b", type=String.class),
  @Property(name="c", type=String.class),
  @Property(name="d", type=String.class),
  @Property(name="e", type=String.class),
  @Property(name="f", type=String.class),

C c = new C().a("a").b("b").c("c").d("d").e("e").f("finish");

this could probably be done by enhancing the Model class with attribute

boolean builder() default false;

and honoring it by generating appropriate "setters" returning this.
