Subject Design question on BeanUtils.populate()
Date Wed, 25 Sep 2002 16:36:28 GMT

In the JSP 1.2 specification there is a reference on page 75 in Table
JSP.4-2 in section JSP.4.2 about the attributes of <jsp:setProperty>.  "If a
parameter has a value of "", the corresponding property is not modified."
This is not the way I've seen BeanUtils.populate() work.  I've seen this
while using struts 1.1b1, that the empty string is set on the JavaBean.

Q.  Is this going to be changed?
Q.  Assuming above answer is no, why?

Thanks in advance,
