Subject Re: [digester] populating beans fixed to BeanUtils?
Date Wed, 29 Oct 2003 21:43:29 GMT
i like beanutils very much.
but the assumption being made is, that the target 
object either implements set/get according to spec or
is an instance of DynaBean.

imo it would be appreciated by many users (at least
in the longterm) if an interface and/or factory is
provided which, call it a "use case", allows for 
custom DynaBean-like behaviour.


ps. do you mean sending example implementation?
