How to properly check for Boolean value in Spring EL expression?

1 answer

I'm a bit new to using Spring Expression Language but I'm trying to see what is the best way to check a that a Boolean value is not null and true?

For type "Display" there is a property "removeMessage" which is of type java.lang.Boolean. So I want to first check that this value is not null and that it is true. Based on if this is true or not I will either return an empty string or a calculatedMessage.

I am currently checking with below expression:

display?.removeMessage != null && display?.removeMessage ? '' : display.calculatedMessage 

While this works, I was hoping to find a more nicer way to do the null and true check. I was thinking/hoping for something more like how we would check normally such as e.g. BoolenUtils.isTrue(value) (apache), or even just checking like Boolean.TRUE.equals(value) which takes care of the null check.

The best answer:

Just having this should work , and already include your null check:

display?.removeMessage ? null : display.calculatedMessage
