Subject [GitHub] incubator-metron issue #293: METRON-473 Add LENGTH() To Stellar
Date Thu, 06 Oct 2016 18:53:03 GMT
Github user ottobackwards commented on the issue:
    OK I have it in.  Here is the thing that I found,  I know there is a pull about fixing
IS_EMPTY from throwing exceptions - and I had to take that same return 0 approach instead
of throwing.  IS_EMPTY did NOT have a test in StellarTests, so it was never being tested through
the stellar variable resolver, validation, parser etc.  If it had had a test there ( using
the run() as implemented in the test ) it never would have been committed, because it NEVER
works, no matter what you pass it as originally implemented with the IllegalStateExceptions.
 This is because the validate calls down to the apply with a specifically null argument which
triggers the exception.
    So, a couple of things:
    - every stellar function needs to be tested through the whole stellar framework and not
just on top of StellarFunction.apply()
    - why would validate call parse which calls apply?  Is that the way it is at runtime?
 Does apply always get called twice?  Is the test harness wrong?

reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at or file a JIRA ticket
