  /**
   * <p><code>Transformer</code> that outputs a property value.</p>
   *
   * <p>An implementation of <code>org.apache.commons.collections.Transformer</code>
that transforms
   * the object provided by returning the value of a specified property of the object.  The
   * constructor for <code>BeanToPropertyValueTransformer</code> requires the
name of the property
   * that will be used in the transformation.  The property can be a simple, nested, indexed,
or
   * mapped property as defined by <code>org.apache.commons.beanutils.PropertyUtils</code>.
If any
   * object in the property path specified by <code>propertyName</code> is <code>null</code>
then the
   * outcome is based on the value of the <code>ignoreNull</code> attribute.
   * </p>
   *
   * <p>
   * A typical usage might look like:
   * <code><pre>
   * // create the transformer
   * BeanToPropertyValueTransformer transformer = new BeanToPropertyValueTransformer( "person.address.city"
);
   *
   * // transform the Collection
   * Collection peoplesCities = CollectionUtils.collect( peopleCollection, transformer );
   * </pre></code>
   * </p>
   *
   * <p>
   * This would take a <code>Collection</code> of person objects and return a
<code>Collection</code>
   * of objects which represents the cities in which each person lived. Assuming...
   * <ul>
   *    <li>
   *       The top level object in the <code>peeopleCollection</code> is an object
which represents a
   *       person.
   *    </li>
   *    <li>
   *       The person object has a <code>getAddress()</code> method which returns
an object which
   *       represents a person's address.
   *    </li>
   *    <li>
   *       The address object has a <code>getCity()</code> method which returns
an object which
   *       represents the city in which a person lives.
   *    </li>
   * </ul>
