Subject Re: inserting null
Date Fri, 14 Jul 2006 16:07:41 GMT
Hmm, that's what I would have thought, but my co-worker was getting a null pointer when he

tried to do that. Might this be because the property is an Integer and something is 
calling intValue on it?

He changed his getter to return -1 instead of null, and configured the sqlmap to insert 
null for that and it works. I just thought I'd ask here because I'm sure I'll have a 
situation at some point where I want the property getter to return null elsewhere.
