    Question you need not duplicate your business

    Hi,

    Below is snippet from Spring technical document:

    In Spring Web MVC you can use any object as a command or form-backing object; you do not need
    to implement a framework-specific interface or base class. Spring’s data binding is highly flexible: for
    example, it treats type mismatches as validation errors that can be evaluated by the application, not as
    system errors. Thus you need not duplicate your business objects' properties as simple, untyped strings
    in your form objects simply to handle invalid submissions, or to convert the Strings properly. Instead, it
    is often preferable to bind directly to your business objects.


    For the sentence highlighted above, can I say "don't need to duplicate" instead of "need not duplicate"?
    It looks like the usage of "need not duplicate" is incorrect in this context.

    Please help to clarify.

    Thanks.

    Re: you need not duplicate your business

    "You don't need to duplicate" means the same as "You need not duplicate". So, if it's incorrect here, changing the wording as you suggest won't help.
