public class ActionHarness extends BeanUtilA utility for consistent interaction with
IActions. Based on
BeanUtil, but with logic specific to
IActionbeans. One such behavior is the setting of pass-through properties to an
IVarArgsAction. Note that all the setValue and setValues methods will properly handle
IVarArgsActions if the bean is of this type.

Set a bean property with a given value, allowing the caller to respond to various error states that may be encountered during the attempt to set the value on the bean. This method also allows the caller to specify formatters that will modify the property name to match what the bean expects as the true name of the property. This can be helpful when you are trying to map parameters from a source that follows a convention that is not Java Bean spec compliant.
propertyName- the bean property to set
value- the value to set on the bean. If value is an instance of
ValueGenerator, then the value will be derived by calling
ValueGenerator.getValue(String). Note: if value is
null, we consciously bypass the set operation altogether since it leads to indeterminate behavior, i.e. it may fail or succeed.
callback- a structure that alerts the caller of any error states and enables the caller to fail, log, proceed, etc
formatters- a list of objects that can be used to modify the given property name prior to performing any operations on the bean itself. This new formatted property name will be used to identify the bean property. bean lookup and value setting
Exception- when something goes wrong (controlled by the callback object)
