Subject [jira] [Commented] (JEXL-177) Unified expressions to be used in String literals in Jexl scripts
Date Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:35:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JEXL-177?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14706739#comment-14706739

Henri Biestro commented on JEXL-177:
------------------------------------

As a general rule, I'm very cautious about adding new constraints to the type system and even
more so if it requires modifying the syntax.
Adding 'templates' to the general syntax raises a lot of warnings.
I'm pretty sure templates can be used - and their support implemented in "vanilla" JEXL -
without the syntax modification.

> Introduce new string literals to jexl script that allow unified expressions to be used,
string literals could use for example triple quoted (single or double) syntax for delimiters,
may include newlines and should not escape single quotes
> {code}
> user = "Bob"; server = "Test"; s = """Hello ${user}, welcome to ${server}"""; return
s;
> {code}
