      • convert

        Object convert​(Object obj)
        Yet another hack in order to use our FeatureType. Converts object to the "real" attribute type.

        Best to explain by Example.

        Consider a choice between Polygon and MultiPolygon. It doesn't make sense to be a Geometry Attribute Type since normal attribute type inspection will allow users/clients to set Points and lines as legal attribute. For parsing purposes, this make the FeatureType a little more accurate. It is not perfect of course since The choice Line, Polygon and MultiPolygon still has to be of Type Geometry but it is a little better.
