Subject Re: BasicDynaBean and overriding the toString()
Date Mon, 01 Dec 2003 20:24:08 GMT
if you really want a good string method, why not simply create a 
BasicDynaBean subclass with such a method?

(maybe i'm missing something but) why not just store the property name 
in a field when can be set when the dynabean is created?
