OrientDB should support JavaFX "primitive" types.

Hi folks,

The getter-setting convention for JavaFX primitive types looks like this:

class Account {
    // .. other members

    private StringProperty middleName;

    public String getMiddleName() {
        return middleName.get();

    public StringProperty middleNameProperty() {
        return middleName;

    public void setMiddleName(String middleName) {

This makes it possible to use such classes with JPA and REST and keep the binding capabilities for the UI.

In OrientDB, trying to use a class like this results in an error that looks like this:

WARNING: Setter method public void domain.Account.setMiddleName(java.lang.String) for field middleName in class class domain.Account cannot be bound to proxied instance: parameter class don't match with field type class javafx.beans.property.StringProperty
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException

I think support for this would be a worthy addition to the product.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. Cheers, Steve
