Spring spel ternary operator example

Spring SpEL:

The SpEL stands for Spring Expression Language. It is a powerful expression language which supports querying and manipulating an object graph at the bean creation time or run time. It is similar to other expression languages like JSP EL, OGNL, MVEL and JBoss EL etc with some additional features like method invocation and basic string templating functionality.

Ternary operator syntax:

condition ? true : false
