Sebb commented on JEXL-140:
---------------------------

Perhaps this example should be added to the documentation?

> Two related suggestions:
> 1. The documentation does not really describe how to call a static method from a JEXL
script.  I believe that it is done this way:
> {noformat}
> class="".class;
> return class.forName("java.lang.System").getenv("test");
> {noformat}
> 2. Implementing a class() function that parallels the existing new() function would make
calling static methods easier, helping to clean up scripts.  The above example would become:
> {noformat}
> return class("java.lang.System").getenv("test");
> {noformat}
