Subject [jira] [Updated] (JEXL-208) Documentation typos/inconsistencies
Date Mon, 01 Aug 2016 21:02:20 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JEXL-208?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Joe Tom updated JEXL-208:
-------------------------
    Description: 
Noticed on https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-jexl/reference/syntax.html that there
are two operands that are defined then in the examples reversed.

Starts With=^
The syntactically ... "abcdef" ^= "abc" returns true. Note that through duck-typing, user
classes exposing a public 'startsWith' method will allow their instances to behave has left-hand-size
operands of this operator.

AND

Not Starts With!^
This is the negation of the 'starts with' operator. a ^! "abc" is equivalent to !(a ^= "abc")

Noticed on https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-jexl/reference/syntax.html that there
are two operands that are defined then in the examples reversed.

Starts With=^
The syntactically CSS3 inspired =^ operator is a short-hand for the 'startsWith' method. For
example, "abcdef" ^= "abc" returns true. Note that through duck-typing, user classes exposing
a public 'startsWith' method will allow their instances to behave has left-hand-size operands
of this operator.

AND

Not Starts With!^
This is the negation of the 'starts with' operator. a ^! "abc" is equivalent to !(a ^= "abc")
