      Description

      The Velocity user guide is not clear about the precedence for resolving the property of a variable. As in the UberspectImpl.java code, the precedence to resolve a property should be something like in this order:

      getbar()
      getBar()
      get("bar")
      isBar()

      This information will be very useful to the user. I suggest that this is added to the user guide under the "Properties" section.
