Resolution: Won't Fix
Affects Version/s: 1.8.3
Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: Bean / Property Utils
We have migrated the library from version 1.6.0 to 1.8.0 and the copyProperties() method fails when copying a java.util.Date attribute with a null value.
Here is a simple testcase :
As a workaround, we can do this :
ConvertUtils.register(new DateConverter(null), Date.class);
When can also use PropertyUtils.copyProperties() because in this case no conversion is required but the impact is unknown on our big application.
The problem is that there seems to be a regression between version 1.6.0 and 1.8.0.
