Hi Woonsan,

thanks for your answer. But are you sure about that?
If I use it like that, I get an "unknown, ambiguous or inaccessible method dataNode" error.

I found the dataNode method in Its javadoc says:

"Manifests within location attribute of <assign> element, for Commons JEXL and Commons
EL based documents."

So what I get from it, is that dataNode can only be used to assign something to a dataNode
via <assign>.

That is not what I want. I want to pass a dataNode including subElements to some java object
via the cond attribute, so I can write a java method which is able to check conditions with
use of the passed dataNode.

So: is there a way in which I can pass a dataNode to a java object in the context which is
used in a cond attribute? Data obviously doesn't work, as I can see in the Builtin code that
it always is parsed to Double or String.

best regards, Rinke
