Have you actually tried this code?
I've only *briefly* looked into the JDK and BeanUtils code, so I'm not 100%
sure of this, but it seems to me that your patch may work when your property
only has non indexed getter/setter based on List, but should fail if your
property also has indexed getter/setter. In the latter case, I would expect
the JDK IndexedPropertyDescriptor class to throw an
IntrospectionException("type mismatch between indexed and non-indexed
methods"). Check the source of

Again, I'm not 100% sure, I would need to test this but I don't have time at

Subject: [beanutils][PATCH] PropertyUtils and indexedProperties

Hi all,

I found a glitch in the PropertyUtils: you can only get an
indexedProperty if its container is an array. But a java.util.List is
also indexed. So it would be logical to be able to get an element of a
List also as an indexedProperty.

Hence the patch attached.

Hope you enjoy it,
