Niall Pemberton commented on BEANUTILS-242:

I have just commited the generic array converter - also created a JIRA encompassing a whole
load of Converter refactorings. See BEANUTILS-258

>                 Key: BEANUTILS-242
>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons BeanUtils
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 1.7.0
>            Reporter: Kenny MacLeod
> When using a method such as BeanUtils.copyProperty(), it would be good if it could automatically
handle conversion between array types, rather than having to explicitly write an array converter
for each target type.
> For example, if I pass a String[] to BeanUtils to copy on to a property of type Integer[],
then it would recognise the presense of an array, and then use the registered converters for
the arrays' component types to decide how to map them together.
> This would remove the need to essentially duplicate converters already written, just
to add array support.
