I am searching a class that fills one bean (dest) with the values of a second bean (source)

Source bean has string properties;

Dest bean has int, string, Date ...

So for example I have to convert String to int or String to Data ...

public class sourceBean() {
public String myVar = "aaa";
public String myVar2 = "bbb";

public class destBean() {
public int myVar;
public Date myVar2;

Thanks for hints where to search.

I doubt whether you would find a readymade class for your utilization. You could probably write your own. Here's one basic example... you might want to refine it with better error trapping.

public class DataCopier {
public boolean copyData(sourceBean source, destBean dest) {
try {
dest.myVar = Integer.parseInt(source.myVar);
SimpleDateFormat formatter = new SimpleDateFormat("MM/dd/yyyy"); // I am assuming the format in source to be MM/dd/yyyy
dest.myVar2 = dateFormatter.parse(source.myVar2);
return true;
} catch (Exception e) {
return false;
