Hello everybody,

sometimes it is useful to call an Xpand template like a function. Thereby all information is handed to the template through the parameter list without any concrete object (null) for which the template is called.

Template template.xpt
«DEFINE generate(String content) FOR Void»
    «FILE "Test.txt" -»
        Content: «content»
    «ENDFILE»
«ENDDEFINE»


Template call from workflow
template::generate('Hello World') FOR null


But since Helios this feature is no longer supported. If you call a template with null there is a check which stops the execution. Is there a specific reason for that? Is it possible to reenable this feature?

See https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=320475

Best regards
Gerd
