Subject [VOTE] DefaultConfiguration.setAttribute(String,<null>)
Date Wed, 10 Dec 2003 14:35:35 GMT
When DefaultConfiguration.setAttribute(key,value) is called with a null 
as the value parameter, it should...

 1. ...throw a NullPointerException.

 2. ...throw an IllegalArgumentException.

 3. ...act as if called with DefaultConfiguration.setAttribute( key, ""
       I.e. set the attribute to the empty string.

 4. ...remove the attribute if it exists.

My vote is for 4. Why? Because setValue(null) removes any existing
value from a DefaultConfiguration.
