Thanks for the prompt answer!
I'll give it a try, and test which option is the easiest for me. My app is a
standalone client, so I don't have issues with other components in the same JVM.
As far as if "(String) parameters[i] doesn't generate a string when
parameters[i] is null", well, I'm not as sure as you are that I knew it already
:-). If you make me think about it, yes, it seems logical to me (that a cast
doesn't generate an Object), but when I read the code I didn't noticed it. I was
just thinking, "nulls shouldn't be converted, so the conditions shouldn't be in
the if clause"... However, I didn't know that passing through ConvertUtils you
can set your preferred defaults for the conversion.
I think I'll test the Custom Converter first, and if I have time, try to add an
option to CallMethodRule. So, on to the BeanUtils site I go!
You can consider this to be a 'documentation bug', and close it with the javadoc
If you think it's worth it, you can make the flag thing an RFE with low priority.
