      Description

      I have a use case which can't be done with the Digester's standard rules. (I
      hope I haven't overlooked Digester's API.) After some experiment, I realized
      with some enhancement I could make CallMethodRule/CallParamRule work. I think
      the use case is pretty common and generic.

      The use case is like this: I need to call a 3rd party API

      Parent.add(Child child, Condition condition)

      with the XML data:

      <parent>
      <child .../>
      <condition .../>
      </parent>

      I can't use SetNextRule as it takes only one object from the stack.
      CallMethodRule/CallParamRule comes close, but it allows only parameters coming
      from body texts or attributes, not generic objects from the stack.

      So, I made the following changes to CallMethodRule/CallParamRule:

      • Changed the param stack frame datatype from String[] to Object[]
      • Overloaded CallParamRule to allow configuration to get the parameter from
        the stack
      • Made CallParamRule stateless so that it works probably in nesting
