Subject RE: [POLL] ActionFrom vs DynaActionForm
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2003 11:47:24 GMT
BeanUtils.copyProperties also works with DynaForms (They implement DynaBean
and BeanUtils treats them (for the most part) as POJB's (c).

I will concede that code completion is a definite plus.  My only counter to
that would be that, if I'm simply copying all my properties to another class
(Torque Object, EJB, Business Object of some sort) why would I ever need
code completion for my action forms?

Code completion is a good point anyway though...

more reasons:
- Easy to copy properties from ActionForm to domain object (using 
BeanUtils.copyProperties )
- code completion can be used with ActionForms
