Subject (BEANUTILS-180-BETA) Access/configuration of PropertyUtilsBean caches
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2008 17:31:34 GMT
Apologies if this is the wrong list for this.

We have an extension to commons beanutils which allows us to make it
work with public fields as well (and a few other improvements we
needed like deep cloning). In 1.8.0-BETA it is easier to handle this
extension (thanks!) but it could be even easier if there was a way to
get and set the caches which are used for storing the
PropertyDescriptors. Just switching the type from FastHashMap to Map
and making a setter and getter which are publicly visible would be
enough to reduce our the work in extending this significantly.

I can submit a patch for this if that is the better way to go about it
but I thought I would see what people thought first. Would this be
generally useful?

P.S. If this is not worth discussing and I should just go to JIRA for
this please just let me know. :-)
