Subject [jira] Resolved: (BEANUTILS-242) Add general array type conversion
Date Sun, 20 May 2007 08:18:16 GMT


Niall Pemberton resolved BEANUTILS-242.

    Resolution: Fixed
      Assignee: Niall Pemberton

The new "generic" ArrayConverter is now registered as the default and the previous converter
implementations for arrays have been deprecated

> 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.
