Subject [BeanUtils] dependencies
Date Wed, 28 Oct 2009 10:44:06 GMT

I'm wondering what external dependencies BeanUtils actually has. On the main
page it's mentioned
that commons-beanutils.jar has an optional dependency on Collections. What
does "optional" mean? Here it additionally says
Logging is a dependency. And then, here is stated that both Collections and
Logging packages are a _requirement_:

Still, I've done some (very basic) successful experiments with BeanUtils
with neither Collections nor Logging on the Classpath. What's the deal?

Best Regards,
