I think I asked this question in the past and was told that this would be put in the roadmap. So I wanted to know where this feature stands.
But here’s what I’m trying to accomplish:
- a user issues a query to an external system. That system will return the results in a CSV file with headers.
- My code will parse that file, and create an entity from the file header.
- it will then create a datasource, fill it with the csv data, and display it in a table.
So that’s why I think I would need to create a dynamic entity.
Right now, this is what I’m doing.
I have created a web companion class where I dynamically create a vaadin table and fill it with data and display that table on my screen.
The problem with this approach is that 1) I noticed that my code running in the web companion class is slow. I don’t know if this is because I’m unwrapping component or what, 2) I cannot take advantage of your generic filter, 3) the table is slow to generate.
So I was just curious to hear if the dynamic entity feature was still on the roadmap or if you have a novel solution to my issues?
