BeanTypeInfo does not ignore synthetic (bridge) methods to determine property types
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CXF-2417
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CXF-2417
             Project: CXF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Aegis Databinding
    Affects Versions: 2.2.3
            Reporter: Fried Hoeben


I have a bean that implements a generic interface that defines a property that uses the generic
type, in the bean the generic type is bound to String.
When BeanTypeInfo determines the property descriptor of that property it (sometimes) does
not detect that the type of the property is String, but instead it thinks it is object.
This is because of the use of the Introspector class in BeanTypeInfo. This class has a bug
(http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=6528714) that means that sometimes property descriptors
are returned that use information of synthetic bridge methods instead of the actual methods
defined in the beans code.

The Spring framework has some code (GenericTypeAwarePropertyDescriptor) that works around
this problem so their BeanUtils does return the correct property descriptors. Furthermore
the comments in their implementation suggests that Introspector is also a source of memory
leaks.
