Subject BeanUtils Properties
Date Tue, 05 Aug 2003 20:45:06 GMT
Can anyone provide a quick answer on the methods BeanUtils uses to find 
properties? I am not particularly fluent in the JavaBeans specification 
(java.beans.* stuff).

So, some specific questions...

Can BeanUtils use a bean.get(String name) type accessor for a Bean?

If so, how do I tell it to look for it? (copyProperties() / populate() 
behavior being of particular interest)

Does BeanUtils respect nested properties on both sides of a 
copyProperties() / populate() (ie, copy object graphs)

Much appreciated!
