This release fixes a bug in VPPCopyTool, corrects some minor typos and adds some clarification here and there in the docs.
- New features:
- Velocity Context tools can now be configured by referencing a
configured data type. This means that the tool can be configured in the
build file using Ant's configuration conventions
- Added Velocity event handler support. Event handlers can be
configured just like tools making them flexible and easy to use.
- Included a useful event handler, VPPFailOnNullInsertion, which throws
BuildException if an attempt is made to insert the value of an undefined
- Added an 'add' attribute to the property element of VPPEngine. This
supports the ability to configure multi-value Velocity Engine properties

VPP is a preprocessing tool based on the Ant build system and the Velocity Template Engine.
VPP includes an Ant FilterReader and 2 Ant tasks. VPPFilter is a FilterReader that processes its input using Velocity. VPP integrates VPPFilter directly into the Copy task for ease of use. Finally, VPPJavac is a drop-in replacement for the Javac task which processes all input through Velocity before compilation.... read more
