> Since 1.8.0, BeanUtils.copyProperties suddenly throws an Exception, if the property is
of type Date. It did not do so in prior releases, that's why properly running software is
nowadays broken. There is a workaround if the BeanUtils are used in my own code, but if it
is used in 3rd party code, I am screwed.
> Please, treat null for Date the same as null for any other type and copy null from source
to destination.
> For more reasons, see the comments of people who move now to new releases of BeanUtils
facing the same problem. The issue gets more and more attention, but I think, nobody except
the reporters are notified about it. Therefore this issue.
