Customizing getter and setting body

In generated ORM code, getters and setters will be generated for attributes added to every ORM Persistable class. Sometimes, you may want to customize the method body of those getters and setters, like to apply security checking or to print a statement upon the updating of data. In these cases, you can customize the getter and setter of attribute to add the code you want.

  1. Right click on the attribute that you want to customize its getter or setting and select Open Specification… from the popup menu.
