      • toMap

        public static Map<String,​Object> toMap​(org.apache.velocity.context.Context context)
        Convert a velocity Context into a map.

        Uses AbstractContext.getKeys() so is vulnerable to the same problems described with putAll(Context, Context)

        context - Context to convert into a map
        map of context values
      • putAll

        public static void putAll​(org.apache.velocity.context.Context dest,
                                  org.apache.velocity.context.Context source)
        Copies entries from a source Context to a destination Context.

        This method is inherently unreliable because the implementation of AbstractContext.getKeys() used in other Velocity contexts doesn't delegate correctly. Because of this only values present in the outmost context of the source are likely to be copied.

        dest - Destination context
        source - Context to
