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

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

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,
Joonas
