Subject Re: Improper capitalization in StringUtils.capitalizedAsConstant()
Date Tue, 14 Feb 2017 15:38:21 GMT
There's no reason why another method couldn't be added.   StringUtils
was originally just a list of methods I found helpful.

StringUtils is a POJO (plain old java object) inserted into the
velocity context.   You can add other objects with your own custom
functions: shows how it's
configured using ant (config nested parameter)
