Hi Experts,

If I use PropertyDescriptor, is there any way that I can get declared field names (not setter/getter method names)?

PropertyDescriptor pd[] = PropertyUtils.getPropertyDescriptors(aForm);

aForm is ActionForm and I want to get all the fields in that class.

thx,

Declared field names will be private. You will have to derive the names I guess. Obtain a list of all getters. If a method is called getName (), then remove out the 'get' and change the case of the first character to make it 'name' and that would be the name of the property. Same way, for boolean properties, it could be like isValid ()
