> Hi,
> I know this has been asked already before but could there be a way to handle 
> exceptions that occur during population? The populate() function could either 
> return a map(property, exception), take that kind of map as argument or -even 
> better- take a PopulateExceptionHandler as argument.
> The reason I would like to see this feature implemented is to allow struts to 
> use this mechanism to convert parameters from the request to actionform's 
> properties without *falling apart* when encountering one that is not well-
> formed. 
> It would be nice too if we were not *forced* to use string-only properties for 
> actionforms (which in fact is a way to circumvent this conversion problem). I 
> would like my ActionForm or DynaActionForm declare strongly-typed properties 
> (maybe custom classes), register proper Converters into ConvertUtils in the 
> ActionServlet.initServlet() for example, and then maybe get back conversion 
> errors from within my action (maybe the PopulateExceptionHandler could add 
> some ActionErrors to the request).
> What do you think? I know this issue is tightly coupled to struts but 
> well... ;-)
> Thanks a lot,
> Xavier
