a Text widget does not accept null values. It forces us to test if the
value is null, and if so, we inject a "".
I'm willing to add a method in common-ui CommonUIUtils class that do
this check instead of having to test that all over the code. May be
tehre is already such a method spmewhere else ?
Here is what I want to add :
* An utility method that return a String which is never null.
* @param value The incoming value, which can be null
* @return The String if it's not null, "" otherwise
public static String getTextvalue( String value )
if ( value == null )
Let me konw if it's ok.
