Subject Re: Configuring my Velocity Tool: where are the properties to be found?
Date Fri, 26 Mar 2010 18:31:56 GMT
Hi Travis,

There's some terminology confusion.  Data are values meant to be
directly put into the context, they are not tool properties.   Tool
properties are configured like this:

<tools>
<toolbox scope="request" thisIsAPropertyForAllToolsInThisToolbox="hello">
        <property name="aTypedPropertyForAllToolsInThisToolbox"
value="true" type="boolean"/>
        <tool key="my" class="org.mine.MyTool"
thisIsAPropertyForThisToolOnly="world"/>
</toolbox>
<property name="aPropertyForAllToolsInAnyToolbox" value="10" type="number"/>
</tools>

See:   http://velocity.apache.org/tools/devel/config.xml.html
