Description Roy Porter 2001-10-03 08:38:34 UTC
Using the set tag, if the property being set is currently null, then it fails 
to set it to the new value.

The code uses a getClass to get the class of the property being set to check it 
against the new value passed. It needs to use the property type contained in 
the ClassMethodCache instead.

The Foundation taglib was never completed or released.  The goal of the
foundation taglib has been met by the JSTL Standard Taglib.
Foundation is being removed from CVS.
