The BeanUtils Component contains a set of Java classes that provide static utility methods useful in manipulating Java classes that conform to the JavaBeans Specification naming patterns for bean properties in a dynamic fashion. The following classes are included:
Listobjects as well (Not JavaBeans standard).
An innovative and unique feature of this component is the syntax for accessing nested and indexed bean properties. See the Javadocs PropertyUtils for more information about this feature.
The BeanUtils component is dependent upon the following external components for development and use:
Current Release: Version 1.5
Planned Next Release: Real Soon Now :) See the Action Items list for tasks that need to be completed prior to this release.
The following individuals are the primary developers and maintainers of this component. Developers who plan to use BeanUtils in their own projects are encouraged to collaborate on the future development of this component to ensure that it continues to meet a variety of needs.
The following action items need to be completed prior to a Version 1.3 release of this component:
|Solidify DynaBeans. Finish discussions on DynaBean structure so that future API changes will be minimal.||Craig (we hope)|
|Install / Use Documentation. Create simple installation and User's Guide documentation for this component.||Craig|
