Subject [jira] Commented: (JEXL-75) Array literal syntax is not supported
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2009 13:40:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JEXL-75?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12739490#action_12739490
] 

Henri Biestro commented on JEXL-75:
-----------------------------------

This requires modifying Parser.jjt.
However, the syntax around '[' ']' is very "crowded" already (with Map literal & array
access).

I do have a fix but it unfortunately involves changing the Map literal syntax to the 'javascriptish'
{ key : value, ... }  and use the '[ value, ... ]'  syntax for Array literal.

IMHO, this change towards the 'javascriptish' syntax seems more natural than the current one
(at least when using Jexl for evaluating attributes & al in taglibs).
If we were to accept that change, documentation will need updating as well.
