    When using @In,@Out or get,set

    nimo stephan Master

      When using @In and @Out, we do not need getter/setter.


      When using a Map:



      @Out(required=false)
      private Map<String, String> myMap;




      then I have to initialize it for example in my @Create or @Factory-Method:



      myMap = new HashMap<String, String>();




      I had assumed, that we should not use the constructor when using @In, @Out.
      But then it does not work when using myMap (NullPointerException). Is that right?


      The other question is:


      Do I have a field-access when using @In/@Out ?


      I do not have getter/setter, so I cannot say:


      in my Bean:
      a.getX()




      in JSF-EL:
      #{a.x}



      By using @In, @Out, I have to say:



      in my Bean:
      a.x




      in JSF-EL:
      #{a}



      So I have to be aware, that the 'a' is unique in my whole web-project? Am I right?


      The Question is:


      Should I use @In/@Out for properties, which I do need in other beans.
      Should I use getter/setter for properties, which I do NOT need in other beans.


      Or should I only use @In/@Out and not getter/setters at all.
