------- Additional Comments From niallp@apache.org  2005-10-16 02:32 -------
All the *default* primitive array converters have an empty array as the default 
value (see the ConvertUtils.deregister() method) and therefore will exhibit the 
behaviour you are seeing.

To resolve this there is no need to create your own custom converter - you can 
simply instantiate a ByteArrayConverter with a "null" default value and 
register it with ConvertUtils:

   Class byteArrayClass = (new byte[0]).getClass();
   ConvertUtils.register(byteArrayClass, new ByteArrayConverter(null));

Changing the current default behaviour would break backwards compatability 
which others are probably relying on.

Since this is working as expected and there is a simple mechanism provided to 
change the default behaviour, I'm closing this as WONTFIX.
