Hi all

i'm trying to use cms inside another cms, i have a cms structure as below (i use insert cms marcro from ivy): alt text so i create a Ivy project then try to get this cms inside html dialog, everything work fine. But if i get that cms in java/ivy script then the cms of second level is not evaluated correctly, it's still a marco, even i show this on screen. alt text What is different of two ways here?

It's correct that embedded macro are only expanded in a JSP or JSF context.

If you require embedded macro expansion in Java/IvyScript you can do that by using internal API. The following sample util expands embedded macros:

public class CmsExpanderUtil {

    public static String expand(String cmsTemplate)
        IEmbeddedScriptExpander scriptExpander = EmbeddedScriptExpanderFactory.createExpander();
        try {
            return scriptExpander.expandEmbeddedScripts(cmsTemplate, 
                    Ivy.request().getContext(null), Ivy.request().getProject().getIvyScriptEngine(), false, 50);
        } catch (PersistencyException | EnvironmentNotAvailableException
                | IvyScriptException e) {
            return cmsTemplate;
