Subject Re: [chain] add expression evaluation?
Date Fri, 03 Dec 2004 16:53:39 GMT
Sorry if I'm getting annoying with my plugs for the Morph framework, but 
Morph's SimpleLanguage would allow users to use whatever expression language 
they are already familiar with (the Struts/BeanUtils language, the Spring 
language, or JSTL).  The SimpleLanguage works with Maps out-of-the-box, and 
thus implicitly with Chain's context notion.

I will be focusing on writing test cases for Morph this weekend, so 
SimpleLanguage should be useable by Monday.
