Welcome to EZMorph

EZMorph is simple java library for transforming an Object to another Object.

EZMorph's key strenghts are:

  • Supports transformations for primitives and Objects
  • Supports transformations for multidimensional arrays
  • Supports transformations with DynaBeans
  • JDK 1.3.1 compatible
  • Small memory footprint (~76K)

EZMorph comes with another feature: ArrayAssertions . JUnit 3.x does not have an assertEquals() method for asserting array equality, and JUnit 4.x has a limited one (it only supports Object[] not primitive arrays). With ArrayAssertions is possible to compare a boolean[] with a boolean[] or even a Boolean[], an those arrays can be multidimensional too.

EZMorph began life as the converter package on Json-lib but seeing that the features provided were more generic than JSON parsing, it became a project on its own.

There are other projects that perform Objetc to Object conversions:

Project name Description
Commons-Beanutils ConvertUtils -> Utility methods for converting String scalar values to objects of the specified Class, String arrays to arrays of the specified Class.
Commons-Lang ArrayUtils -> Operations on arrays, primitive arrays (like int[]) and primitive wrapper arrays (like Integer[]).
Commons-Convert Commons-Convert aims to provide a single library dedicated to the task of converting an object of one type to another. The first stage will focus on Object to String and String to Object conversions.
Morph Morph is a Java framework that eases the internal interoperability of an application. As information flows through an application, it undergoes multiple transformations. Morph provides a standard way to implement these transformations.
Lorentz Lorentz is a generic object-to-object conversion framework. It provides a simple API to convert a Java objects of one type into an object of another type.
Spring framework Spring has an excellent support for PropertyEditors, that can also be used to transform Objects to/from Strings.
Dozer Dozer is a powerful, yet simple Java Bean to Java Bean mapper that recursively copies data from one object to another. Typically, these Java Beans will be of different complex types.
