[jira] [Commented] (GROOVY-9779) Inconsistency with callable properties in static context

Eric Milles (Jira)

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GROOVY-9779?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=17212441#comment-17212441 ]

Eric Milles commented on GROOVY-9779:
-------------------------------------

In general "()" is considered the "call" operator and can be used to invoke the call method of its receiver.  https://docs.groovy-lang.org/latest/html/documentation/#Operator-Overloading

I don't see any roadblocks to making the instance case work like the class case.  But I have to run through some tests to be sure.
