Subject Re: Node property type constraints violated when setting strings
Date Fri, 02 Nov 2012 13:57:58 GMT
Hi Michael,

Thanks for your response. Based on that spec I would expect that if I 
tried to assign a value of "abc" then the property would end up being 
set to false (based on how Java converts strings to booleans). However 
what I am seeing is the property being assigned a string value of "abc".
