      Description

      It's sort of hard to extend UseBean because it will try to set all the tag attributes as bean properties. You can remove an attribute from the map, but that's annoying because then your subclasses don't see it.

      I added a couple of methods that let a subclass tell UseBean to ignore certain property names. So, those properties stay in the attribute map but don't cause errors in setting the bean.

      This is the first step to a patch to clean up the Swing ComponentTag so that it fails properly when one misspells a bean property. As long as everyone agrees to this method of ignoring attributes that aren't bean properties.
