             Summary: Resolve naming collisions for static imports in the 
Gremlin language
                 Key: TINKERPOP-1579
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TINKERPOP-1579
             Project: TinkerPop
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: process
    Affects Versions: 3.2.3
            Reporter: stephen mallette


This may not be a breaking change - it can likely be done with deprecation 
along the 3.2.x line. The problem is that static imports collide in the 
{{GremlinScriptEngine}} and therefore there are not only situations where 
certain imports will be "hidden" but it can cause the system behave in 
non-deterministic fashion depending on the {{ScriptEngine}}. For example, 
groovy's compiler seems to only be able to detect the difference between 
{{Column.values}} and {{__.values()}} if wildcards are used. If they are 
imported directly then one of the other will fail.

Here's a list of the troublemaker names that collide across different 
methods/enums: or,and,id,values,key,local,value,sum,min,max.
