How do I read mapped bean’s property value?

In this example you’ll see how to read mapped property value of a bean. We use PropertyUtils.getMappedProperty() method the read the mapped property of the Record object that consist of Track objects.

package org.kodejava.commons.beanutils;

import org.apache.commons.beanutils.PropertyUtils;
import org.kodejava.commons.beanutils.support.Track;
import org.kodejava.commons.beanutils.support.Record;

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;

public class ReadMapProperty {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Record record = new Record();
        record.setTitle("Abbey Road");

        Track track1 = new Track();
        track1.setTitle("Come Together");

        Track track2 = new Track();
        track2.setTitle("Something");

        Map<String, Track> tracks = new HashMap<>();
        tracks.put("1", track1);
        tracks.put("2", track2);

        record.setMapTracks(tracks);

        try {
            Track track = (Track) PropertyUtils.getMappedProperty(record, "mapTracks(1)");
            System.out.println("track.getTitle() = " + track.getTitle());
        } catch (Exception e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
    }
}
package org.kodejava.commons.beanutils;

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.List;
import java.util.Map;

public class Record {
    private Long id;
    private String title;
    private List<Track> tracks = new ArrayList<>();
    private Map<String, Track> mapTracks = new HashMap<>();

    public Long getId() {
        return id;
    }

    public void setId(Long id) {
        this.id = id;
    }

    public String getTitle() {
        return title;
    }

    public void setTitle(String title) {
        this.title = title;
    }

    public List<Track> getTracks() {
        return tracks;
    }

    public void setTracks(List<Track> tracks) {
        this.tracks = tracks;
    }

    public void setMapTracks(Map<String, Track> mapTracks) {
        this.mapTracks = mapTracks;
    }

    public Map<String, Track> getMapTracks() {
        return mapTracks;
    }
}

And here is the result of our program.

track.getTitle() = Come Together
