Description Jesse Glick 2005-11-02 18:22:55 UTC
Dev build. Make a j2seproject. In Properties, set Application Args to "a b c"
and VM Args to "d e f". gets

application.args=a b c

and gets

run.jvmargs=d e f

I would have expected

    a \
    b \


    d \
    e \

Easily done by using EP.setProperty(String,String[]) of course. Problem:
currently StoreGroup provides no API to save split properties. Could either

1. Override StoreGroup in J2SEProjectProperties for these two props.

2. Add an API to SG like

public final Document createSplitStringDocument(PropertyEvaluator evaluator,
String propertyName, String splitter) throws PatternSyntaxException;

where splitter would be used to break apart values, e.g.

Pattern regex = Pattern.compile("(?<=" + splitter + ")");
// ...
String val;
String[] pieces = regex.split(val, -1);

Would be nice to have it in 5.0, maybe without API change in the 5.0.
The SG API can be changed later.
