Description Jochen Luell 2002-02-20 06:26:02 UTC
When using getAttribute on a Search, Attributes that don't exist for the current
entry are not removed from the context but are kept.
This results in getting old entries.

A resolution could be to remove the attribute from context if not present.

Line 210 to 212 which looks like this

if (theAttribute == null) {
            return SKIP_BODY;
        }else ...

could be changed to:

if (theAttribute == null) {
                    if (getId() != null) {
                        pageContext.removeAttribute(getId(), scope);
            return SKIP_BODY;
        } else ...

which should resolve the problem.
