I just noticed Shinobu's updated version of the Fred Toth's TemplateExistsTool for the VelocityViewServlet
in Velocity Tools v.1.2 (details on wiki here:

This updated class doesn't seem to work for me (using tools 1.2 and velocity 1.4 ... i.e.
current release versions, not dev tree)

The problem originates with the new exists(String template) method: this uses the resourceExists()
method which exists for (in favour of the deprecated templateExists()),
but not for org.apache.velocityapp.VelocityEngine (which only has the templateExists() method
... Not deprecated). I am therefore getting a java.lang.Error because the resourceExists()
is undefined for VelocityEngine.

Changing resourceExists() to templateExists() results in NullPointerException.

Can anyone tell me what is going on here?
