Class RetireSaveHandler

  extended by org.openmrs.api.handler.RetireSaveHandler
All Implemented Interfaces:
RequiredDataHandler<Retireable>, SaveHandler<Retireable>

public class RetireSaveHandler
extends java.lang.Object
implements SaveHandler<Retireable>

This handler makes sure the when a retired object is saved with the retired bit set to true, the other required values (like dateRetired and retiredBy) are filled in. It also makes sure the retired attributes are cleared out if the retired bit is set to false.

The RequiredDataAdvice class uses AOP around each method in every service to check to see if its a save* method. If it is a save* method, and the object being saved implements Retireable, this class is called to handle setting the Retireable.setRetiredBy(User), and Retireable.setDateRetired(Date) if not set already.

Note: The RequiredDataAdvice class will loop over child collections on this Retireable that are themselves a Retireable and retiredBy/dateRetired are set, but ONLY IF the retired bit was set on them as well. Using the associated retire* method in the service on the parent instance is preferred so that all child objects are indeed retired.
