Subject [jira] Commented: (VELOCITY-688) ! preceding a reference in strict mode ignores a null exception
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2009 17:58:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VELOCITY-688?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12672333#action_12672333

Christoph Reck commented on VELOCITY-688:
-----------------------------------------

This is the original intent of the bang syntax - it is to allow the template writer to say
"this may be null".

Without strict mode, $!foo will not log anything if it is undefined or null.

I have not used the strict mode, so I have not considered what to do then for a $foo that
is undefined or null. I do agree with Nathan that a $foo null reference in strict mode should
throw an exception as originally devised. A $!foo null reference in strict mode should output
nothing or throw an exception (no preference here).

> Change strict mode (runtime.references.strict = true) behavior such that when Velocity
attempts to render a reference that evaluates to null then throw an exception.  If the reference
is preceded by '$!' as in $!foo, then simply render nothing and ignore the null value as it
does for non strict mode.
