Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONFIGURATION-703) xml:space="preserve" does not handle blank strings properly
Date Sat, 02 Jun 2018 06:22:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONFIGURATION-703?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16498902#comment-16498902

Pascal Essiembre commented on CONFIGURATION-703:
------------------------------------------------

Some of the tests fail when I do not consider child attributes.  The reason seems to be that
some tests expect {{null}} while others expect an empty string when we are not preserving
spaces and there is no content.  Shouldn't it be consistent? If so, I have a fix, but for
it to work we would have to settle on one or the other and modify a few tests accordingly.

>             Project: Commons Configuration
>          Issue Type: Bug

>            Priority: Major

> When using XMLConfiguration 2, tags containing only white spaces are not handled properly
when xml:space="preserve" is set.  'null' is returned instead of the actual spaces.  To
reproduce:
>  
> {code:java}
> XMLConfiguration xml = new BasicConfigurationBuilder<>(
>         XMLConfiguration.class).configure(
>             new Parameters().xml()).getConfiguration();
> FileHandler fh = new FileHandler(xml);
> fh.load(new StringReader("<test xml:space=\"preserve\">    </test>"));
> System.out.println("TEST: '" + xml.getString("") + "'");
> // Outputs   -> TEST: 'null'
> // Should be -> TEST: '    '
> {code}
>
