Subject [jira] Commented: (VELTOOLS-113) new DisplayTool features
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2009 14:56:59 GMT


Nathan Bubna commented on VELTOOLS-113:

Oh, i see the use, i only meant that i personally don't need it.  Our apps typically pull
text from ResourceTool, so we have to structure things more like:

${text.cart.itemCount}: $item_count   ->  Items in your cart: 12

As for the tests, we use Ant as our primary build system, not Maven.   Run "ant test.generic"
to run the GenericTool tests.
