moved from https://issues.library.cornell.edu/browse/NIHVIVO-3119, dated 8/8/11, originally created by Rebecca Younes:
Need tests to exercise the "continue" cases in BaseDumpDirective.getMapDump() - methods, plus properties "class" and "empty". The code has been added to DumpDirectiveTest but currently doesn't work and so is commented out; search for "degrees" in the file.
Most likely collections other than maps will have the same issue, and will need to skip methods as well; though see notes in BaseDumpDirective - this is not necessarily the optimal approach, since it uses dump to filter out things we assume the template shouldn't be exposed to. At this point it's a quick 'n' dirty solution to crashes in dump when reaching a method inside getMapDump().
