Arbitrary DataStore based on String key and Serializable value #216
From yan...@google.com on April 20, 2013 06:42:06
Let's add an abstract Store interface modeled after com.google.api.client.googleapis.subscriptions.SubscriptionStore and com.google.api.client.auth.oauth2.CredentialStore that stores arbitrary data based on a String key and a Serializable Object value. We should then provide thread safe implementations MemoryStore, JdoStore, and AppEngineStore.
This would reduce the amount of duplicate code between the implementations of CredentialStore and SubscriptionStore, which also reduces development, testing, and documentation effort. There are also a lot of bugs and missing features in the current implementations and design of JdoCredentialStore and AppEngineCredentialStore, so now is a good opportunity to redesign it. It would also enable us to add additional fields in the future without having to change the implementations.
