Register AttributeType instances #2044
Jul 31, 2019
13 of 14 checks passed
The impact of this change is that typed attributes are stored as strings. This is visible in the JSON/XML/Binary serialized format, as the Java type of each attribute value is no longer sent. This should be a Good Thing, as it makes the serialized format smaller, and allows a different Java class to be used for the attribute value at each end of the network connection. Most users should not see any incompatibility in code, but it is possible that it might be seen if the serialized format is used in unusual ways.
