When scaffolding an app, Spring Roo always mirrors String with TextBoxes, Dates with DateBoxes, etc. However, a user may want to use a different editor. For instance, they may want to use a TextArea in place of a TextBox. Prior to create the managed edit view, Spring Roo should scan the unmanaged edit view. If a field already exists, it should not be added to the managed view.
I have written code to do so and am happy to share it with the community. I just need to know how to do so.
