Two-Way databinding in EditText

I have this object

ObservableInt someNumber;

public ObservableInt getSomeNumber()
{
return someNumber;
}

public void setSomeNumber(ObservableInt number)
{
this.someNumber = number;
}


and my AppCompatEditText is like this in xml code:

<android.support.v7.widget.AppCompatEditText
android:layout_width="0dp"
android:layout_height="@dimen/agro_item_height"
android:layout_weight="1"
android:inputType="numberDecimal"
android:text="@={String.valueOf(myObject.someNumber)}"
android:gravity="center_horizontal"/>


I'm having this error:

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:compileDebugJavaWithJavac'.
java.lang.RuntimeException: failure, see logs for details.

I already have tried just with

android:text="@={myObject.someNumber}"


but I'm having this error:

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:compileDebugJavaWithJavac'.
java.lang.RuntimeException: Found data binding errors.
****/ data binding error ****msg:Cannot find the getter for attribute 'android:text' with value type int on android.support.v7.widget.AppCompatEditText.
file:C:\Users\Moviit\AndroidStudioProjects\pbbchile-android\app\src\main\res\layout\row_agro_tab.xml
loc:51:8 - 60:48
****\ data binding error ****


Anybody has an example of how to do this? Thanks!

Answer

Thanks to the binding adapters from @LongRanger I was able to advance a lot more in my solution but I had to make some changes on the adapters and in my code. First of all I had to init the ObservableInt member like this:

ObservableInt someNumber;

public ObservableInt getSomeNumber()
{
    return someNumber;
}

public void setSomeNumber(ObservableInt number)
{
    this.someNumber = number;
}

Second, I had to change the adapters given by @LongRanger to be like this:

@BindingAdapter("android:text")
public static void bindIntegerInText(AppCompatEditText tv, int value)
{
    tv.setText(String.valueOf(value));    

    // Set the cursor to the end of the text
    tv.setSelection(tv.getText().length());
}

@InverseBindingAdapter(attribute = "android:text")
public static int getIntegerFromBinding(TextView view)
{
    String string = view.getText().toString();

    return string.isEmpty() ? 0 : Integer.parseInt(string);
}

That way I avoid the error: Invalid int "", when trying to do Integer.parse(...) on the @InverseBindingAdapter. After this I had to put the cursor on the end of the EditText with the @BindingAdapter, otherwise the cursor kept moving to the start.
