Subject special character # in template doesn't work.
Date Wed, 29 Oct 2008 00:11:08 GMT
hi Everyone
 
Can someone give me a hint why the sample HelloWorld.java (see below) removes character #
from my banner (see MyBanner.vm).  As you see, the result shows all my # signs removed from
the first line and second line.  Is # a special character in Velocity?  Thanks.
 
------------------MyBanner.vm ----------------

/* first, get and initialize an engine */
VelocityEngine ve = new VelocityEngine();
ve.init();
/* next, get the Template */
Template t = ve.getTemplate( "MyBanner.vm" );
/* create a context and add data */
VelocityContext context = new VelocityContext();
context.put("name", "World");
/* now render the template into a StringWriter */
StringWriter writer = new StringWriter();
t.merge( context, writer );
/* show the World */
System.out.println( writer.toString() );
}
}
