Subject RE: How to initiate the select tag with empty list
Date Fri, 02 Aug 2013 17:37:10 GMT
You have to separate the notion of a use case where silently handling a null makes logical
sense versus where it often would imply an error condition on the part of the developer. 

If the view expects an empty list, there is no quam in passing the value stack reference as
a Collections.EMPTY_LIST and populate it later using whatever method you desire.  This way
you can still logically differentiate between the case where you mean for the select to be
empty versus where the select wasn't provided anything and in almost all cases is an error
use case.
