---------------------------------

             Summary: Improvements for invoking static methods
                 Key: JEXL-140
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JEXL-140
             Project: Commons JEXL
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: George Scott
            Priority: Minor


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:

class="".class;
return class.forName("java.lang.System").getenv("test");

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:

return class("java.lang.System").getenv("test");
