Subject JXTG weirdo
Date Tue, 16 Mar 2004 18:55:18 GMT
Today I got stuck using JXTG in what I thought would have been a quite 
common use case. I have to generate a cforms definition file (a 
selection list, actually) which is dynamically built from a bean that 
returns a Map.

This beans (which, BTW, is an Avalon component) resides in the session, 
so I thought that something along 
${cocoon.session.getAtttribute('mybean').getMap()} or the equivalent 
#{$cocoon/session/attribute['mybean']/map} would have done the trick, 
but indeed that wasn't the case. I thought that there was something 
weird with the cocoon.session part, since is FOM bases and flow was 
involved only to a certain extent, so I resorted to a sitemap parameter:

<map:parameter name="mybean" value="{session-attr:mybean}"/>

but even this one seems unwilling to behave as I expected. The thing is 
that if I try just ${cocoon} I can see my parameter=MyBean there, and if 
I try ${cocoon.parameters.mybean} I indeed get a MyBean@whatever, so the 
object is there (pardon my funky syntax: I'm writing on a bus and don't 
have the actual code in front of me, please consider that I *think* I'm 
using a correct syntax. However, I'm still unable to access any accessor 
of my object: all I get is an empty evaluation that carries a 
firghtening nothing using Jexl syntax, and a non-existent path using 
JXPath's. I feel I'm doing something *horribly* wrong, but ATM I'm out 
of ideas. Any suggestions?
