Subject [jira] [Created] (JEXL-147) Array literal with variable parts never re-evaluated
Date Tue, 28 Oct 2014 15:25:33 GMT
Marcel Schoen created JEXL-147:

             Summary: Array literal with variable parts never re-evaluated
                 Key: JEXL-147
             Project: Commons JEXL
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.0.1
            Reporter: Marcel Schoen
            Priority: Minor

Suppose there are two integer variables 'one' (with value 1) and 'two' (with value 2). Now
I create an array variable with this expression:

myArray = [ one, two ]

Now I change the values of these variables later ('one' to 5 and 'two' to 6), and evaluate
the same expression again:

myArray = [ one, two ]

Now I would expect "myArray" to be created again, this time with values 5 and 6. However,
the second time, nothing really happens. Internally, "myArray" remains the same array from
the first invocation (same Java String array object instance), with the same values (1 and
2). But since I was using variables with different values in the expression, I would expect
the array to change / be re-created.
