Subject [jira] Commented: (BEANUTILS-296) 1.8.0-BETA source does not match up with binary, making debugging difficult
Date Thu, 18 Oct 2007 16:08:50 GMT


Tim Ferro commented on BEANUTILS-296:

Hi Niall, thanks for taking a look - 

Here is an (obviously sanitized) trace of the path I'm following through the code.  I'm using
Intellij 6.0.5 (in the Environment section above), and I only have one project containing
the commons-beanutils library.  Please ignore the exception itself, that's what I was debugging,
that fault is in my own code.

java.lang.NoSuchMethodException: Property 'myBeanProperty' has no setter method
        at org.apache.commons.beanutils.PropertyUtilsBean.setSimpleProperty(
        at org.apache.commons.beanutils.PropertyUtilsBean.setNestedProperty(
        at org.apache.commons.beanutils.PropertyUtilsBean.setProperty(
        at org.apache.commons.beanutils.PropertyUtils.setProperty(
        at com.myPackage.MyClass.setValue(

I have confirmed that I'm attached to the correct source in the commons-beanutils-1.8.0-BETA-sources.jar
that shipped inside the commons-beanutils-1.8.0-BETA.jar file in my classpath.  I do not have
any other commons-beanutils jars (binary or source) in my classpath or ide settings.  

PropertyUtils:559 has me in comments above getProperty type(Object bean, String name).
PropertyUtilsBean:1677 has me in the setMappedProperty(Object bean, String name, Object value)
PropertyUtilsBean:1648 is in the comments above setMappedProperty(Object bean, String name,
Object value)
PropertyUtilsBean: 1746 is in the setMappedProperty(Object bean, String name, String key,
Object value) method

Thanks again for taking a look

for not knowing which mirror.
> I attached the enclosed source jar (commons-beanutils-1.8.0-BETA-sources.jar) and when
I step into the beanutils code through the debugger, I'm sitting on comments, the wrong method,
etc.  Appears to be going to the correct line #, but the source is apparently not the same
source used to build the binary.
