Subject [jira] Created: (JEXL-79) Add support for growable arrays (ArrayLists)

Add support for growable arrays (ArrayLists)
--------------------------------------------

                 Key: JEXL-79
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JEXL-79
             Project: Commons JEXL
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Sebb
             Fix For: Later


JEXL now has fixed arrays. Trying to access a non-existent entry generates an Exception.

Might be useful to allow for the creation and manipulation of growable arrays, e.g. using
ArrayList.

Writing to a non-existent entry should just create the value; reading should return null and
empty.

This would need a new syntax.

Perhaps:

list=[1,2,3,...]
and
emptyList=[...]

I did wonder about using (), but that would clash with method invocation.

Other ideas welcome!
