Subject Re: Build the GBeanInfo with the attribute name caselessly?
Date Tue, 23 Jun 2009 17:11:42 GMT
Perhaps I can be convinced otherwise but I think the attribute and  
reference names should remain case sensitive.  Are there other DI  
systems that have case insensitive property names?  What does  
blueprint do?

I don't like case insensitive file systems either :-)

I'm not exactly sure what connector code you are thinking of, can you  
point to it more specifically?
