Subject Re: Setting a bean property to null in BXML

You can? I have never tried that.  :-)

Not at the moment. I can think of at least one class that converts an empty string to null
in a string setter, but we don't have dedicated "null" support in BXML.

Seems like a reasonable thing to add, though - the "empty string to null" conversion isn't
especially intuitive. Whatever token we adopt, it should probably start with "$" so we know
it is a reference. Maybe "$bxml:null"?
