I tried this, validation works correctly, so the problem is with the

I don't have easy access to an IDE so I used log4j and logged it that 
way. The log statements are never called (I am pretty sure I am using 
the logger correctly as I am logging a field I know is working.)

I have also tried renaming the field (twice). I am using an OJB mapping, 
but I have saved the data to the bean without saving to the database and 
my log messages for channel remain uncalled. Curious thing about the OJB 
though is that even that doesn't trigger the log messages, which leads 
me to conclude that the problem with the whatever mechanism is used to 
guess the get/set routines.

Here are the interfaces for my get/set routines:

public int getChannelInfo() {...}
public void setChannelInfo(int inChannelInfo) {...}

and the attribute:

private int mChannelInfo;

Any help would be appreciated.
