Re: [Jastadd] Problem with latest change to JastAdd2

I've had a look at jrag/CollectionAttributes.jrag in the JastAdd2
repository to see if I could find what's causing this bug.

I found that there are some if-statements surrounding the code
generation for (conditional) collection contributions which look like this:

   if (c.getCondition() != null) ...

I tried adding the following

&& c.getCondition().trim().length()>0

at all such occurrences and that seems to solve the bug. The problem was
that the getCondition method used to return null if there was no
condition but now this method can return an empty String instead.
