[jira] [Commented] (GROOVY-6668) Static compiler doesn't coerce GString for getAt() call

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GROOVY-6668?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16478329#comment-16478329 ]

Jochen Theodorou commented on GROOVY-6668:
------------------------------------------

To add on the written before...  so while I disagree, that m["$k"] should fail,{code}m["$k"].toUpperCase(){code} fails because we call getAt(String) form Object here. The method is defined to return Object, thus no toUpperCase() is possible. Since this is a Map<String,String> and we have the DGM <K,V> V getAt(Map<K,V> self, K key), we have in theory a kind of getAt(String):String method available. So for me the real problem here are the damn generics and shadowing of DGM within DGM. If you would define a DGM <V> getAt(Map<String,V> self, String key), I would expect the toUpperCase() to work.
