Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: Difference between BeanUtils and PropertyUtils

  1. Difference between BeanUtils and PropertyUtils (1 messages)

    Hi
      I am using BeanUtils.copyProperties() method to copy values from a form bean to a DTO. But, then i came across the same method in PropertyUtils class. What is the difference between these two methods?
      Also, where do i find more documentation about commons BeanUtils? I've found the javadoc API on apache website. I need more documentation.

     Thanx in advance
  2. While BeanUtils use the ConvertUtils to do the conversion. Get property methods in BeanUtils usually return String instead of original property value.
