For copying one bean properties to another bean apache provided BeanUtils can use, but the condition is
both beans properties signature should match.
But most of the time beans fields signatures(naming) can be different between layers(service, dao etc).
Is there any API which can copy one bean properties to another bean even though field names different?
Best example is castor mapping file where eventhough request xml fields names are different still we can process(map)
request data to xml.
