Please fix this bug -- it makes AXIS2 unusably slow for big XML files.

> We return arrays of complex objects - all of the same type for any particular web services
call.  Axis2 was unusably slow.  Upon closer inspection, it was spending much of its time
in BeanUtil.  The #1 problem is that it is performing introspection repeatedly for each and
every object.  Introspection is very expensive - calling the methods once you find them is
> The solution is to perform the introspection and cache the results.  I added a few lines
of code to and brought our request from 48 seconds down to 8.  This solution
may not be exactly how you would implement it, but the idea is sound and the results are very

> The map would probably need to use weak references to not prevent class unloading.  And
you may not want to depend on the Java 5 generics and concurrent collections.  But the point
remains - without this POJO is too slow (rhyme intended).
