Nested Substitutions 

Apache Commons Lang 3.0 is a java library with lot of utilities and reusable components. This requires the library commons-lang3-3.0.1.jar to be in classpath. The following example shows using StrSubstitutor.setEnableSubstitutionInVariables() API which enables nested variable substitutions. It allows us to evaluate variable names recursively.

package com.bethecoder.tutorials.commons_lang.tests.gen;

import java.util.HashMap;
import java.util.Map;

import org.apache.commons.lang3.text.StrSubstitutor;

public class NestedSubstitutionTest {

   @param args
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    Map<String, Object> valueMap = new HashMap<String, Object>();
    valueMap.put("GRD2""Garuda Version Two");
    String template = "Product version : ${${version}${ver_number}}";
    StrSubstitutor sub = new StrSubstitutor(valueMap);


It gives the following output,
Product version : Garuda Version Two
