[jira] [Created] (GROOVY-8194) property access on a list acts like the spread operator

JIRA jira@apache.org
zyro created GROOVY-8194:
----------------------------

             Summary: property access on a list acts like the spread operator
                 Key: GROOVY-8194
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GROOVY-8194
             Project: Groovy
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.4.10, 2.4.4
            Reporter: zyro


why does the following assertion pass?
{code}
class Dummy {
    String name
}

def dummyOne = new Dummy(name: "dummy one")
def dummyTwo = new Dummy(name: "dummy two")

def dummies = [dummyOne, dummyTwo]

assert dummies.name == ["dummy one", "dummy two"]
{code}

imho, {{dummies.name}} should fail with a {{MissingPropertyException}}.
the assertion should only pass if the spread operator is actually used like
{code}
assert dummies*.name == ["dummy one", "dummy two"]
{code}

reproduced with groovy-2.4.4 and 2.4.10.
same behavior if the list is defined inline or if the list is assigned to a variable first.

thanks, zyro
