Subject [jira] Commented: (CLI-61) [cli] argument defaults prevent commandline usage.
Date Wed, 22 Aug 2007 04:52:30 GMT


Brian Egge commented on CLI-61:

I tested this patch out, and it makes sense.  It's the same issue as CLI-145, and the solution
is better than the patch I created.  I would apply this patch, and then apply the test case
from CLI-145.

> I have found a bug in the following scenario:
> You have an option which can take a single argument which in turn has a default
> value. You supply a value on the command line which is intended to override
> this default however as the CommandLine already has a value for this Option,
> this second value is not allowed and the command line cannot be parsed.
> I have created a patch which adds a method to WritableCommandLine and its Impl
> which allows you to retrieve the undefaulted values for an Option. I have then
> changed ArgumentImpl to use this method to determine the argument count
