Subject [jira] Created: (CONFIGURATION-362) XMLPropertyListConfiguration doesn't handle empty <dict/> correctly

XMLPropertyListConfiguration doesn't handle empty <dict/> correctly

                 Key: CONFIGURATION-362
             Project: Commons Configuration
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.6
         Environment: Mac OS X 10.5.6  JDK 1.5
            Reporter: Kent McPhee

Empty "dict" elements are not handled properly.   During printing of a configuration, configuration
nodes that have no children and no value are assumed to be "strings" (see's
last "else" clause).   <dict/> is parsed in such a way (see startElement() and endElement()
of that same file) that it ends up creating a configuration node with no children and no value.
 Thus printing out a parsed property list will print <string>null</string> everywhere
an empty dictionary was in the input.
