  • Invoke static constant on a variable through EL?


    I would like to invoke a static constant on a variable with the EL. That is, I have a constants class:

    package org.kuali.rice.krad.uif;

    public class UifConstants {

    public static final String RIGHT = "RIGHT";


    And I want to be able to use this constant in XML configuration. I know we can do it like this:


    but I would like to provide a variable so the full classname does not have to be used each time. So I added a variable of 'UifConstants' with value UifConstants.class.

    I can't find a way to make this work from the el though. Couple of things I tried are:

    ${#UifConstants.RIGHT} (I suspect it tries to call getRight() in this case which it can't find)
    ${T(#UifConstants).RIGHT} (gives an error about not expecting the #)

    If anyone knows a way of accomplishing this I would greatly appreciate it!
