Subject [jira] Created: (BEANUTILS-360) BeanUtils.copyProperties() method is not working in JDK1.6
Date Mon, 07 Sep 2009 13:14:57 GMT
BeanUtils.copyProperties() method is not working in JDK1.6

                 Key: BEANUTILS-360
             Project: Commons BeanUtils
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Bean / Property Utils
    Affects Versions: 1.7.0
         Environment: WebSphere Application Server v7.0.0.3 (WAS) , RAD7.5.3
            Reporter: Srinivas Vemula

we are using beanutils 1.7.0 version and the below code is not working as expected. as i mentioned
we are using the WebSphere Application server v7.0.0.3 JDK. i.e, JDK1.6

code snippet:
interface GroupInterface :
package test.groups;
public interface GroupInterface {
	 public static final int ACTIVE 	= 1;
	  public static final int INACTIVE 	= 0;
	  public static final int DELETED 	= -1;
	  public void setActivated(Integer value) ;
	  public Integer getActivated() ;
} :
package test.groups;
public class GRPInfo implements GroupInterface {

	private Integer activated;
	public void setActivated(int value) {
		setActivated(new Integer(value));
	public void setActivated(Integer value) {
		this.activated = value;
	public Integer getActivated() {
		return activated;
} :
package test.groups;
import org.apache.commons.beanutils.BeanUtils;
public class GRPTest {

	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
		GRPInfo src = new GRPInfo();		
		GRPInfo dst = new GRPInfo();
			System.out.println(" SRC Activated -->"+src.getActivated());
			System.out.println("DST Activated "+dst.getActivated());

If i run the above sample application (, the 'copyProperties()' is not actually
copying the values from 'src' to 'dst'.
i can see the value 1 in the 'dst' object. this behavior is observed on WAS JDK1.6 but the
same code is working fine on WAS JDK1.5

suspecting on two variants of setActivated() method. but the pointer here the same code is
working fine on JDK1.5
is this a compliance problem with JDK1.6 with the BeanUtil.copyProperties() method?
