Subject [jira] Commented: (BEANUTILS-307) BeanUtils.setProperty(...) not working for property "xValue" (see description for reason)
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2008 18:01:51 GMT


Niall Pemberton commented on BEANUTILS-307:

OK its been a while since I looked at the java beans spec - my first thought is you should
be using "XValue" as the property name instead of "xValue".

>                 Key: BEANUTILS-307
>                 URL:
>             Project: Commons BeanUtils
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Bean / Property Utils
>    Affects Versions: 1.8.0-BETA
>         Environment: linux, jdk 1.6, beanutils 1.8 beta
>            Reporter: Alexander Koppelhuber
> setting values for a property that has one lower case character at the beginning
> followed by an upper case character does not work. for example "xValue" or "zIndex".
> The reason (as far as I found out) is as follows:
> Introspector.getBeanInfo() gets the property names from the get/set methods.
> In Introspector.getTargetPropertyInfo() the following code creates a PropertyDescriptor:
> >pd = new PropertyDescriptor(decapitalize(name.substring(3)),......)
> decapitalize(....) says "....when there is more than one character and both the first
and second characters are upper case, we leave it alone..."
> which results in the name = "XValue" for the method getXValue()
> so setProperty(...) does not find a descriptor for "xValue" and cannot call the setXValue
> I think this issue is not limited to 1.8 beta but also to earlier versions
