Subject RE: tomcat 4.1.10 mishandling nested variables in tags?
Date Fri, 13 Sep 2002 00:32:23 GMT
Muchos gracias for all the input guys, but I guess I'm just going to have to
go back to tomcat 4.0.4 since disabling tag pooling does not seem to resolve
this problem for me. I'm pretty sure I could knock up a really short example
that demonstrates this problem, who should I submit it to to get it into the
testing suite?

Yes, that's the right explanation. There's unfortunately no good test suite
for Jasper, as Watchdog just doesn't test this.

Yes, please do !

The code generator generates much more optimized code, and is therefore more

Nice workaround :) I'll mention it.
