Description muellermi 2015-06-09 20:14:03 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201506090001)
Operating System = Windows 8 version 6.2 running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.8.0_45
Runtime = Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 25.45-b02

In a web application (JSF), xhtml page, enter an opening tag like

            <h:panelGroup rendered="#{false and book.reviewLinks.size() > 0}">

then start the corresponding closing tag


and invoke autocompletion (by ctrl space)

NetBeans completes to


but it has to be
with a capital "G"

For me as an experienced developer, this is just annoying to correct this every time. 
But for a junior developer this might be a problem, which he discovers late at runtime...

I just made some additional checks:

If i invoke autocomplete at the same line

<h:panelGroup rendered="#{false and book.reviewLinks.size() > 0}"></h:

NetBeans offers the completion using the correct case. The problem only occurs, if invoking at a different line.

I don't know when this error appeared the first time. I checked 20150605 which contains the same problem.
No such problem in NB 8.0.2 (original version, I haven't tested with the latest updates)

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
