Bug in apache beanutils – BeanUtils.copyProperties – unintended null to 0 conversion for Wrapper classes


In the above code if the dest has null values for ‘Long’ fields, and source has null values too, during copying of properties, it dumps the value ‘ new Long(0)’ into the dest bean. This has serious issues when that bean is used to persist the values in database as null is different from 0.
