Subject Re: Cayenne with the last Velocity release
Date Sat, 09 Jun 2012 09:21:46 GMT
Depending on your build system, could you invoke different versions of velocity for the build
environment (Cayenne) and the runtime environment (your app)?

Alternatively, the velocity templates in Cayenne are quite simple. Perhaps you'd be able to
review what would be needed in upgrading them to velocity 1.7. I don't think it should be
too hard... we'd be happy to see your patches for inclusion in Cayenne. Personally I don't
use Velocity outside of Cayenne, so I don't know what is involved in the upgrade.

impressed and satisfied with Cayenne. It really makes things easier to model and implement.

are not properly generated from Velocity shipped with Cayenne. :)
