Subject [jira] [Created] (JEXL-207) Inconsistent error handling
Date Fri, 15 Jul 2016 08:09:20 GMT
Henri Biestro created JEXL-207:

             Summary: Inconsistent error handling
                 Key: JEXL-207
             Project: Commons JEXL
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 3.0
            Reporter: Dmitri Blinov
            Assignee: Henri Biestro
             Fix For: 3.0.1

I can't figure out what is the logic behind current implementation of script interruptablity/error

For example the following script will execute up to the end and return 42 in any mode (strict/silent)

x = null.1; return 42

whereas the following script will break with exception "bean is null" also in any mode (strict/silent)

null.1 = 2; return 42

and the following script will throw an exception in strict mode regardless of being silent/non-silent
z = [1,2]; x = z[3]; return 42

The documentation states that
The strict flag tells the engine when and if null as operand is considered an error, the silent
flag tells the engine what to do with the error (log as warning or throw exception)

>From the first example we see that null is not considered as error when we resolve bean
property value, even does not log a message, while it might be expected in strict mode. From
the second example we see that null is always considered as an error when we set bean property
value, but is never ignored (always breaks script execution), even in silent mode. From the
third example we see that AIOOBE is also considered as an error that breaks script execution
in strict mode, regardless of silent/non-silent mode.
