Yes, that is what I meant. I was a little surprised at your results, so
wrote an independent test myself, and came to the same conclusion:
ConvertUtils supports String->String[], but BeanUtils just doesn't call
the converter.

I would tend to regard that as a bug in BeanUtils, but that's no help to
you. Registering a converter to solve your original problem is obviously
not going to work. 

You might try using CallMethodRule rather than BeanPropertySetter; that
rule optionally takes an array of paramtypes, and converts all its
inputs to those types before invoking the target method. It's meant
really for cases where the target method takes some interface or
abstract type but may well cause the ConvertUtils.convert to be

Otherwise it looks like you'll have to use a custom Rule class after
