Class URIEditor

java.lang.Object
  extended by java.beans.PropertyEditorSupport
      extended by org.springframework.beans.propertyeditors.URIEditor
All Implemented Interfaces:
PropertyEditor

public class URIEditor
extends PropertyEditorSupport

Editor for java.net.URI, to directly populate a URI property instead of using a String property as bridge.

Supports Spring-style URI notation: any fully qualified standard URI ("file:", "http:", etc) and Spring's special "classpath:" pseudo-URL, which will be resolved to a corresponding URI.

Note: A URI is more relaxed than a URL in that it does not require a valid protocol to be specified. Any scheme within a valid URI syntax is allowed, even without a matching protocol handler being registered.

2.0.2
