The propertyName changing as below in the PropertyPath constructor doesn't follow the JavaBeans Specification (8.8 Capitalization of inferred names.).

// PropertyPath Code: lines 73:
PropertyPath(String name, TypeInformation<?> owningType, List<PropertyPath> base) {
    String propertyName = name.matches(ALL_UPPERCASE) ? name : StringUtils.uncapitalize(name);

The code means the first capital letter is changed to lowercase when the name doesn't matche ALL_UPPERCASE.
But the JavaBeans Specification says:

Thus when we extract a property or event name from the middle of an existing Java name, we
normally convert the first character to lower case. However to support the occasional use of all
upper-case names, we check if the first two characters of the name are both upper case and if
so leave it alone. So for example,
    “FooBah” becomes “fooBah”
    “Z” becomes “z”
    “URL” becomes “URL”

For example:
When I have a property named [MCount] in a class, I use PropertyPath.from to get the property, I'll get the following exception, because the property name was changed to [mCount].

PropertyPath property = PropertyPath.from("MCount", classType);

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Unable to locate Attribute with the the given name [mCount] on this ManagedType [class]...

Affects: 1.13.1 (Ingalls SR1)
