BeanInfo dependency with XMLEncoder

In my application i am using XMLEncoder to seralize the java beans and at the same time each bean has a beaninfo in the classpath . Suppose if my javabean name is abc , my beaninfo class is abcBeanInfo.

But the problem is that as XMLEncoder uses introspector , it gets my beanInfo and writes using this ...because of which i am not able to write few properties of the java bean ...

I want to tell the encoder not to use my BeanInfos.... If there is no BeanInfo actually it creates one on its own , i want to enforce this behaviour ..How to do this ??

Can't you just fix the BeanInfo? A JavaBean, by definition, is a bag of public properties. They shouldn't have private state -- at least not private state that can't be reproduced on demand from the public state.
