EL: implementation of parseExpression does not implement spec

           Summary: EL: implementation of parseExpression does not implement
                    spec
           Product: Commons
           Version: 1.0 Final
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: EL
        AssignedTo: commons-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jltaylor@pobox.com


The implementation of parseExpression in the EL expression evaluator does not conform to the
JSP 2.0 specification.  The javadoc for the fMapper argument states that 
"The ExpressionEvaluatormustnotholdontotheFunctionMapperreferenceafter returning fromparseExpression().
TheExpression object returned must invoke the same functions regardless of whether the mappings
in the providedFunctionMapper instance change between calling ExpressionEvaluator.parseExpression()
andExpression.evaluate()."

The test case which I will attach clearly shows that this is not the case.

Why hasn't anybody noticed this before, you may ask?  I suspect that the current implementation
of Tomcat never updates the bindings in its function mapper once one is constructed, since
the functions are defined at web-app load time and can't be updated after that.
