The xel-config Element
The allowed child elements include
evaluator-class. At most one
xel-config element is allowed for each
<xel-config> <evaluator-class>my.MyExpressionFactory</evaluator-class> </xel-config>
The evaluator-class Element
It specifies the class used to evaluate XEL (Extensible Expression Language) expressions. The specified class must implement the ExpressionFactory interface.
Since ZK 6, if not specified, ZK uses the new XEL implementation from the ZK EL Library (i.e.,
zel.jar), which supports new features seen in Unified Expression Language 2.2 such as method calls and l-value. If ZK cannot find the
zel.jar in your class-path, ZK will degrade to use the original ZK Commons EL(
If your Web server uses another implementation, you can do one of the following:
- If you prefer the implementation based on Apache JSP 2.1 EL, you have to specify the ApacheELFactory class. If the Web server doesn't support Apache JSP 2.1 EL, you have to copy
el-api.jar(JSP 2.1 API) and
jasper-el.jar(Apache's implementation) to your Web application.
- If you prefer the implementation based on Apache Commons EL (JSP 2.0 EL), you have to specify the ApacheELFactory class. If the Web server doesn't support Apache Commons EL, you have to copy
commons-el.jarto your Web application.
- If you want a different implementation, you can extend from ELFactory or ApacheELFactory by simply overriding the
newExpressionEvaluatormethod. Of course, if you prefer, you can implement the ExpressionFactory interface directly.
- Required only if you are using the Web server that supports only JSP 2.0.
