Class Property

  • public final class Property
    extends Object
    A description of a JavaBeans Property that allows us to avoid a dependency on java.beans.PropertyDescriptor. The java.beans package is not available in a number of environments (e.g. Android, Java ME), so this is desirable for portability of Spring's core conversion facility.

    Used to build a TypeDescriptor from a property location. The built TypeDescriptor can then be used to convert from/to the property type.
