Description Adrian Nistor 2013-06-07 14:23:24 UTC
Created attachment 30404 [details]

The problem appears in version 7.0.40 and in revision 1490425.  I
attached a two-line patch that fixes it.

In method "ValidateVisitor.isExpression", the loop over "nodes" should
break immediately after "elExpression" is set to "true".  All the
iterations after "elExpression" is set to "true" do not perform any
useful work, at best they just set "elExpression" again to "true".

Method "startInternal" in class "StandardHost" has a similar loop
(over "valves"), and this loop breaks immediately after "found" is set
to "true", just like in the proposed patch.  Other methods (e.g.,
"MapperListener.findDefaultHost", "CollectVisitor.checkSeen",
"JspDocumentParser.processChars", "ParameterParser.isOneOf") also have
similar loops with similar breaks, just like in the proposed patch.

Thanks for the patch. It has been applied to trunk and 7.0.x and will be included in 7.0.42 onwards.
