Package org.apache.shiro.functor Description

Package containing functor components used for data translation or conversion. Of particular note is the Translator interface and its implementations.

Translators are useful in a framework like Shiro which can integrate with many other 3rd-party APIs and frameworks. A Translator is convenient when translating from one API concept into another, for example, translating a 3rd-party framework Exception to a Shiro Exception or vice-versa.
