Subject [jira] [Created] (JEXL-252) Allow for interpolated strings to be used in property access operators
Date Thu, 25 Jan 2018 15:26:00 GMT
Dmitri Blinov created JEXL-252:
----------------------------------

             Summary: Allow for interpolated strings to be used in property access operators
                 Key: JEXL-252
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JEXL-252
             Project: Commons JEXL
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 3.1
            Reporter: Dmitri Blinov


Now we have a possibility to access an object property by specifying either {code}object.property{code}
or {code}object."property"{code} expression, but not {code}object.`property`{code} expression.
Since interpolated strings can be used anywhere in scripts as ordinal strings, it would be
logical to allow them to be used in property access operators too. It would allow to have
the property name not necessarily to be a constant, but to be evaluated without using the
array access operator, since property access operator and array access operator could be implemented
(overloaded) differently for the object.
