Subject Re: [beanutils] 1.6.1 breaks backward compatibility?!?
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2005 03:56:05 GMT
Not according to my build:

[laurie@Lauries-Computer]$ jar xf ../commons-beanutils.jar
[laurie@Lauries-Computer]$ cat META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
Manifest-Version: 1.0
Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.5.3
Created-By: 1.4.1_01-b01 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)
Extension-Name: org.apache.commons.beanutils
Specification-Title: Jakarta Commons Beanutils
Specification-Vendor: Apache Software Foundation
Specification-Version: 1.6
Implementation-Title: org.apache.commons.beanutils
Implementation-Vendor: Apache Software Foundation
Implementation-Version: 1.6

[laurie@Lauries-Computer]$ ls org/apache/commons/beanutils/*UtilsBean*

However, trying to trace through the 1.6 code in my debugger, it doesn't 
appear to match up with the code that's executing. I'm guessing the 1.7 
(pre)release has an incorrect manifest?
