    Allow retrieval of the collection instance from the bean [JB

    Rashid Kamran Newbie

      I mistakenly started the discussion on the Issue Tracker.. well my understanding of reading the collection instance from the bean rather than replacing it is as follows

      public class MyClass
      {
       private List<String> list;
      
       public List<String> getList();
      
       public MyClass(){
       list = new ArrayList<String>();
       list.add("One");
       list.add("Two");
       }
      }
      <property name="list"><list><value>Three</value><list></property>
      


      So it seems to me that after bean initialization the bean will be having One-Two-Three as the member of the list property.

      Just wanted to know if this is exactly whats gonna happen ? because if this is the case, I feel is not the conventional behavior where setter is supposed to replace the property.
