Subject DynaValidatorForm and BigDecimal problem
Date Thu, 01 Mar 2007 15:03:30 GMT

Has anyone had problems with BigDecimal and DynaValidatorForms?

I've got a form with two fields (advisorFee and grossIncome) defined as
java.lang.Double. I want to change them to java.math.BigDecimal because
they are money fields. 

If I change advisorFee to BigDecimal, the validation fails when I enter
a value into grossIncome, even though this is still a Double.

This is the error I get: 

javax.servlet.ServletException: BeanUtils.populate

[Caused by]...


This doesn't make any sense to me. Is it possible that it's a bug in
1.3.5? Why should changing the definition of one field change the
behaviour of another (they are not linked in any way e.g. in the
validation rules)
