Affects Version/s: 1.1-beta-1
Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: core / taglib.core
Per a recent email from Paul Libbrecht, we should allow expressions to throw an exception. Currently, the Expression interface doesn't throw exceptions.
- currently, the script evaluation isn't terminated because of an expression exception. should it be? by default, I mean. could this be another flag in the environment?
- should the tag itself be given a way to intercept exceptions from Expressions? Expressions are evaluated before the tag is run, so it normally wouldn't know anything about them.
Email from Paul Libbrecht [firstname.lastname@example.org]:
One of the most frustrating place in jelly, to my taste, is when a jexl exception occurs... Jelly complains (at least with good logging
settings) but does not throw. Moreover, this complaint doesn't have a jelly line-number which makes it somewhat hard.
Is there really any wish that such an exception is not thrown ?
