[jira] [Created] (JEXL-288) Annotation can not be specified for a standalone statement

JIRA jira@apache.org
Dmitri Blinov created JEXL-288:
----------------------------------

             Summary: Annotation can not be specified for a standalone statement
                 Key: JEXL-288
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JEXL-288
             Project: Commons JEXL
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 3.1
            Reporter: Dmitri Blinov


It is expected that the following code
{code:java}
@Annotation while (true) {}
{code}
should be successfully parsed as the code below
{code:java}
@Annotation {while (true) {}}
{code}
The suggestion is to change the grammar for the annotated statement from
{code:java}
void AnnotatedStatement() #AnnotatedStatement() : {}
 {
    (LOOKAHEAD(<ANNOTATION>) Annotation())+ (LOOKAHEAD(<VAR>) Var() | LOOKAHEAD(1) Block() | Expression())
 }
{code}
to
{code:java}
void AnnotatedStatement() #AnnotatedStatement() : {}
 {
    (LOOKAHEAD(<ANNOTATION>) Annotation())+ (LOOKAHEAD(1) Block() | Statement())
 }
{code}
