I have a simple String property named x.
I call xPropertyDescriptor.setPropertyEditorClass(XEditor.class);

XEditor is:

public class XEditor extends PropertyEditorSupport {
private static final String[] CHOICES = {"a", "b", "c"};

public String[] getTags() {
return CHOICES;
public String getJavaInitializationString() {
return (String)getValue();

The combo opens fine. But when I choose a,
VE generates
instead of
This doesn't compile particularly well.

How do I make it return a String?

Also, what is getJavaInitializationString?
The JavaDocs aren't helpful.
Is there more thorough documentation anywhere?
