> I've developed a small bean based TableModel, that I use to
> display list of beans in JTables. It works nicely as long
> as I don't need to display a nested property in the columns,
> thats why: the getColumnClass method passes only a columnIndex
> information and wants the Class of that column. If I use the
> getPropertyDescriptors I would need a lot of extra code to understand
> that a property is a nested one, load the correspondend class, and
> so on (and I think that this code is the job of BeanUtils), if I
> create a new istance of the class with Class.newIstance the dependent
> object are set to null and getPropertyType fails...
> So I think that it would be nice to complete the functionality of
> the PropertyUtils class with a getPropertyType(Class theClass, String propName)
> with the ability to handle also nested properties...
