Subject Nesting Velocity tags
Date Thu, 13 May 2004 16:37:36 GMT

Question: Can Velocity recursively process tags found inside values returned from the context?

Here's a simplified example of what I'm talking about. My template may contain something like:

My name is ${name}.

In the context I have these key/value pairs:

name=${first} ${last}

When I process the template against that context, I would like to see:

My name is Fred Bloggs.

...but my initial tests give me:

My name is ${first} ${last}.

Possibly I'm doing something wrong, possibly there's a very simple way to make it do what
I need and I'm just not seeing it. Unfortunately this isn't a hypothetical situation - this
is something I have to get working, and I'm running out of time. If anyone knows the answer
I'd appreciate it.
