Here is an overview of the issue:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
        Key: JELLY-77
    Summary: [patch] Update jelly:util replace tag to replace entire strings
       Type: Improvement

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Major

 Time Spent: Unknown
  Remaining: Unknown

    Project: jelly
 Components: 
             tags

   Assignee: 
   Reporter: Paul O'Fallon

    Created: Sun, 24 Aug 2003 2:25 PM
    Updated: Sun, 24 Aug 2003 2:25 PM
Environment: win xp, jdk1.3.1

Description:
The replace tag documentation indicates that it replaces "occurrances of strings", but the
code only replaces instances of the first character in the old string with the first character
in the new string.  It also does not accept an empty string as the new string.  I have a patch
that updates the replace tag to replace whole strings, as well as accept empty strings, available
here:
http://home.earthlink.net/~ofallon/patches/jelly-util-diff.txt
it updates both the code and the project.xml file to add a dependency on commons-lang.  All
of the existing util tag tests still passed after making this change.

If this change is implemented, it may also make sense to change the attributes "oldChar" and
"newChar" to just "old" and "new", but I'll leave decision that up to someone else :-)

Thanks,
Paul
