Problems on introspection/reflection under a Servlet Container

Hi there.
I�m experiencing problems involving introspection/reflection under Tomcat when using JSTL and STRUTS. At first , I named the setters and getters methods the standard way... For instance, for userName and dateOfBirth attributes, I created set/getUserName and set/getDateOfBirth methods. I created a testing class where I populated one bean from another using the introspection provided by BeanUtils.copyProperties(targetBean,sourceBean) ... In the command line, it worked very well with the methods named as above , BUT, when I try to do the same under Tomcat, it just doesn�t work unless I change the naming of the setters/getters methods... I mean , unless I create setUsername/getUsername or setusername/getusername and setDateofbirth/Dateofbirth or setdateofbirth/getdateofbirth , the instrospection doesn�t work at all ! I�ve already tested it for JSTL tags and STRUTS (populating a business tier bean from a FormBean) and unless I name these methods this way , I don�t get it working !
Could anyone please tell me what happens ???
Thanks !

You have already asked this question here. If you are not happy with the responses, simply asking the same question again in a different thread is not the way to go about it. Stick with the original thread and try to refine your question there.
I am going to request this thread be closed and followups be posted to the original thread.
I agree. Here's the link:
