Subject Re: Features are complete ?

Geir, could you pelase post the code of your #eval directive, maybe to 
the whiteboard? Thanks.

Thomas, you can use this code to create your own directive that does
that then. OK, stop here..., I see you want to do this from the java 
code... either:
a. just get a SimpleNode via Runtime.parse(inputStream, name), then 
   init(ica, null) it and finally render(ica, writer) it;
b. implement your own Resource - see on how to.
c. if you want resource cachning implement a ResourceLoader.
Probably the best (if a. is not sufficient) is to subclass Template 
and provide your own ResourceLoader for it.
