I need to access constants to load as value in a label (eg.) Can I do it with EL ?

Are yo using MVC or MVVM Architecture? and what issue you are getting to access static variables?

I might be wrong, but I don't think you can do it with built-in EL, maybe some other supported EL (e.g. OGNL) can allow this. Alternatively, you can just create instance getters to return the static variable

Have the same issue MVVM with version 6.5.3

zul :


vm try 1:

private static final int PAGING_ENTRY_SIZE = 15;

public static int getPAGING_ENTRY_SIZE() {

vm try 2:

public static final int PAGING_ENTRY_SIZE = 15;

public static int getPAGING_ENTRY_SIZE() {

It works when I remove the static from the getter. This is of course not how to implement it correct.

Greetz chill.

Indeed, but if you make a static var, you want o alter in a static way. Little overkill to instanciate the object to change a static var? Or doubling the method, a static and a non static one isn't also that nice, if you understand what I mean.

statics are somewhat unhandy in many ways, especially when it comes to testing, they are hard to mock. how about a single bean in the application scope or a singleton spring bean?
