Subject Re: Build the GBeanInfo with the attribute name caselessly?
Date Wed, 24 Jun 2009 14:43:39 GMT
Underneath the geronimo-connector-builder, a couple of codes  in the like this:

if (attributeInfo == null) {
                String originalName = name;
                name = switchCase(name);
                attributeInfo = gbeanData.getGBeanInfo().getAttribute(name);
                if (attributeInfo == null) {

that is caused by some of the properties in the rar plan always prefer the
Upper case word as the name, such as
                    <config-property-setting name="Password"/>
                    <config-property-setting name="LoginTimeout"/>
                    <config-property-setting name="UserName"/>
A jira is opened for that in the past(G-4131).

I think there might be a little bit difference with the blueprint, our plan
file is more like used by a user to config a application, but the purpose of
blueprint which grasp the sprit of spring framework is to provide a
convienent way for application developer to assemble javabeans to some
extent, isn't it?
