AutoValue: Cursor Extension

An extension for Google's AutoValue that generates a createFromCursor(Cursor c) method for AutoValue annotated objects.

Usage

Include auto-value-cursor in your project and add a static factory method to your auto-value object.

import com.gabrielittner.auto.value.cursor.ColumnName;

@AutoValue public abstract class User {
  abstract String id();
  abstract String name();
  // use the annotation if column name and field name aren't the same
  @ColumnName("email_address") abstract String email();

  public static User create(Cursor cursor) {
    return AutoValue_User.createFromCursor(cursor);
  }

  // Optional: if your project includes RxJava the extension will generate a Func1<Cursor, User>
  public static Func1<Cursor, User> mapper() {
    return AutoValue_User.MAPPER;
  }

  // Optional: if your project includes RxJava 2 the extension will generate a Function<Cursor, User>
  public static Function<Cursor, User> mapper() {
    return AutoValue_User.MAPPER_FUNCTION;
  }

  // Optional: When you include an abstract method that returns ContentValues and doesn't have
  // any parameters the extension will implement it for you
  abstract ContentValues toContentValues();
}

Important: The extension will only be applied when there is

  • a static method that returns your value type (User in the example) and takes a Cursor as parameter
  • and/or a static method that returns a Func1<Cursor, YourValueType> and has no parameters

Custom types

The following types are supported by default:

  • byte[]
  • double/Double
  • float/Float
  • int/Integer
  • long/Long
  • short/Short
  • String
  • boolean/Boolean

For other types, you need to use the @ColumnAdapter annotation and specify a factory class that implements the ColumnTypeAdapter interface. When you need to map multiple columns to one custom type you can simply ignore the given columnName. Eg.:

User.java:

@AutoValue public abstract class User {
  abstract String id();
  abstract String name();
  @ColumnAdapter(AvatarAdapter.class) Avatar avatar();

  public static User createFromCursor(Cursor cursor) {
    return AutoValue_User.createFromCursor(cursor);
  }
}

AvatarAdapter.java:

public class AvatarAdapter implements ColumnTypeAdapter<Avatar> {
  public Avatar fromCursor(Cursor cursor, String columnName) {
    String smallImageUrl = cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndex("small_image_url");
    String largeImageUrl = cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndex("large_image_url");
    return new Avatar(smallImageUrl, largeImageUrl);
  }
  public void toContentValues(ContentValues values, String columnName, Avatar value) {
    // leave this empty when you don't use a "toContentValues()" method
    values.putString("small_image_url", value.smallImageUrl);
    values.putString"large_image_url", value.largeImageUrl);
  }
}

Avatar.java:

public class Avatar {
  final String smallImageUrl;
  final String largeImageUrl;

  public Avatar(String smallImageUrl, String largeImageUrl) {
    this.smallImageUrl = smallImageUrl;
    this.largeImageUrl = largeImageUrl;
  }
}

Download

Add a Gradle dependency:

annotationProcessor 'com.gabrielittner.auto.value:auto-value-cursor:1.1.0'
// if you need the @ColumnName or @ColumnAdapter annotations also include this:
compile 'com.gabrielittner.auto.value:auto-value-cursor-annotations:1.1.0'

Snapshots of the development version are available in Sonatype's snapshots repository.
