Subject RE: #parse() directive
Date Wed, 16 Apr 2003 14:06:02 GMT
As I mentioned earlier, how about using a StringResourceLoader. I have
created one and it seems to be working fine. I was wondering whether
something of this kind would be useful in standard Velocity.

This requirement would be present to a large extent in cases where hte
templates are being generated dynamically.

you are mistaking the purpose of the #parse directive.  what you need is
tool such as Simon suggests.  try:

or if you are using Velocity-Tools, use

for greater convenience.
