[jira] [Resolved] (VELTOOLS-151) is the "application" a reserved word in the EscapeTool? Nathan Bubna (Resolved) (JIRA) Wed Feb 01 11:11:41 2012


Nathan Bubna resolved VELTOOLS-151.

    Resolution: Not A Problem

This is a question, not a bug or feature request.  Next time send questions to 

For the record, no, EscapeTool does not reserve any terms.  VelocityTools does 
treat $application as significant (i.e. returns the ServletContext for that), 
but by default (in Tools 2.x, at least) user-set values take precedence over 
automatic servlet api and tool references (e.g. $application).
