It seems that JBoss and/or Seam uses it's own EL support classes... these
will fall back to the PropertyEditor's if all else fails.
It would appear that either in your JBoss server a StringArrayPropertyEditor
has been registered, or else JBoss registers such
a property editor by default (perhaps for the JMX console)

The new environment does not have such a property editor registered.

[Preeti: Before you go running back and emailing me to say that somebody on
the trinidad list found a solution, check who's sending this mail ;-) ]

The hack is to register a StringArrayPropertyEditor in the container.  This
does not fix the original issue.  The original issue is best fixed by using
an EL function to convert the string to a string array, as not every
container is as ameanable to registering custom PropertyEditor's on start-up
as Jetty.

BTW.  Registering a custom property editor in a Servlet Context Listener is
a potential ClassLoader leak as PropertyEditorManager is in the global
classloader and would contain a reference to the class from the deployed
application.  Additionally, as PropertyEditorManager is in the global
classloader, the hack has the potential to break any other applications
deployed to the container / break the container.  That is why using an EL
function is the correct and only solution.
