look two char "$" and "%"

this method:

    public static Object translateVariables(char[] openChars, String expression, ValueStack stack, Class asType, ParsedValueEvaluator evaluator, int maxLoopCount) {
        // deal with the "pure" expressions first!
        //expression = expression.trim();
        Object result = expression;
        for (char open : openChars) {
            while (true) {
                    String var = expression.substring(start + 2, end);

                    Object o = stack.findValue(var, asType);
if user input is "%{expr}"
this will execute ognl like:
