Subject Re: parsing variable name in a velocity template
Date Tue, 20 May 2003 20:07:31 GMT
Put the Velocity context in the Velocity context.  Then use the getKeys
method to get an array of all the context keys.  Check the javadoc for
this at

It is possible to have $something in a template without it referring to
any context field, so regex won't work in all cases.
