Subject Using reserved words on Groovy Config files
Date Mon, 08 Aug 2016 13:19:06 GMT
Hello there!

Because we have external dependencies, we have to use some reserved words
on a Groovy file that will be parsed by the ConfigSlurper. We had to use
quotation marks, and the strange thing is: in the first level, it works (as
it can be seen on the IntelliJ screenshot, it is taken as a variable), but
then if we have at least one level of nesting, then it fails (as can be sen
on the screenshot, is not underlined).

Of course, if we try to parse this file, the first scenario works, and the
second one throws this exception:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException:
java.lang.NullPointerException: Cannot invoke method call() on null object

We ended up by escaping the nested variable, so now it looks like '*/it*'.
Does anyone knows a better solution? Is this a bug?

Thanks a lot,
