Subject ClassCastException with BeanComparator
Date Wed, 08 Apr 2009 22:24:29 GMT
Hello all, 


I'm getting an exception in code 


java.lang.ClassCastException: java.lang.ClassCastException:
java.lang.String cannot be cast to java.math.BigDecimal



I'm using BeanUtils 1.7.0 but when I download the source I see that this
class is not there anymore.  I can't see the source to see what's the
real issue.


What I have is a bean where some properties are Objects because I
determine the type dynamically (for custom fields). I read them from the
DB so in this case it's a Numeric field which comes back as BigDecimal.
The field is displayed on a web page to the user and they edit and
submit. At this point the bean property will be a String since It's
passed up through struts (Struts 1.2.9).


Any ideas how to solve?
