    messageformat error blows up (JBSEAM-1859)

    Pierre Raoul Novice

      When an EL expression is not closed by a brace, an error is thrown.

      It would be better to show the wrong expression as it is:
      1/ it's already the way of doing the thing, see in InterpolatorTest the existing case of

      // test that a messageformat error doesn't blow up
      Assert.assertEquals("{nosuchmessage}", interpolator.interpolate("{nosuchmessage}"));

      2/ atm when an EL expression is not closed by a brace, the trace doesn't give a clear clue of what is wrong (see trace below). I wasted too much time with such an error.

      With the wrong expression shown in place of the expected result, it'd be straightforward.

      In any case I suggest to check that the end bracket is present and at least to throw a exception with a specific message.

      ====================
      Error in Authenticator:

       public boolean authenticate() {
       try {
       User user = (User) entityManager
       .createQuery(
       "from User where username = :username and password = :password")
       .setParameter("username", identity.getUsername())
       .setParameter("password", identity.getPassword())
       .getSingleResult();
      
       if (user.getRoles() != null) {
       for (UserRole mr : user.getRoles())
       Identity.instance().addRole(mr.getName());
       }
       return true;
       } catch (NoResultException ex) {
       FacesMessages.instance().add(
       "#{messages['entity.user.login.invalid']");
       return false;
       }
       }
      
      


      and the trace (only the first occurence, as it starts a loop):

      13:47:43,500 INFO [STDOUT] Hibernate: select user0_.username as username11_, user0_.name as name11_, user0_.password as password11_, user0_.currentBranch as currentB4_11_ from User user0_ where user0_.username=? and user0_.password=?
