Without a specific example of what "goes boom" means, it is not possible 
to tell whether this is a bug in BeanUtils or a user error.  However, 
the design intent of the "lowerCase" flag is that, no matter what the 
database returns for column names, the *entire* property name (as seen 
in the DynaBeans) is in lower case.  For example, if your database 
returned "ACCOUNT_ID" as a column name, the property in DynaBeans would 
be treated as "account_id" instead.

If you are seeing something different, please post a bug report with a 
detailed example:
