[classlib][beans] analyzing indexed properties

                 Key: HARMONY-2289
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-2289
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Non-bug differences from RI
         Environment: all
            Reporter: Alexei Zakharov

RI's implementation of Introspector behaves oddly during analyzing some exotic beans. Let's
look at the following piece of code:

import java.beans.*;

public class TestIntrospector2 {

   public static class MyParent {
       public Integer getProp1(int i) {
           return new Integer(1);

       public void setProp1(int i, Integer val) {}

   public static class MyClass extends MyParent {
       public String[] getProp1() {
           return new String[2];

       public void setProp1(String[] val) {}

   public static void main(String[] argv)  throws Exception {
       BeanInfo binfo = Introspector.getBeanInfo(MyClass.class, Object.class);
       PropertyDescriptor[] pds = binfo.getPropertyDescriptors();

       for (PropertyDescriptor pd : pds) {
           System.out.println("Name: " + pd.getName());
           System.out.println("Descriptor type: " + pd.getClass().getName());
           System.out.println("Property type: " + pd.getPropertyType());
           if (pd instanceof IndexedPropertyDescriptor) {
               System.out.println("Property indexed type: " +

The output on RI is the following:

Name: prop1
Descriptor type: java.beans.IndexedPropertyDescriptor
Property type: null
Property indexed type: class java.lang.Integer

So it identifies an indexed property here. But it is not correct since
array accessor methods have the type that differs from the one of
regular accessor methods. More formal: this is against the design
patterns for indexed properties described in JavaBeans spec (ยง 8.3.3,
pages 55-56). It was decided in the list [1] that Harmony implementation should report the
regular property that has String[] type here.
