Hello Anand and Jamed ..thanks for the prompt reply..
i specified <%@ page isELIgnored ="false" %> in my result.jsp and it worked.
I have Tomcat 5 installed ( Tomcat version 5 implements the Servlet 2.4 and JavaServer Pages 2.0 specifications )
Also, i read : The default mode for JSP pages delivered with a Servlet 2.4 descriptor is to evaluate EL expressions.
And i do not have <el-ignored> true </el-ignored>..in my web.xml

That's pretty strange!
Could you do me this favor: Copy your JSP in a brand new application having bare minimum web.xml, and remove <%@ page isELIgnored ="false" %> from the JSP and try to see if JSP works as expected.
I am asking this because by default EL evaluation should be turned on without specifying anything anywhere. Second this, since you specied isELIgnored=false page attribute in your JSP and it started working so now I am highly doubting that you have el-ignored set to true in your web.xml and that setting is getting overridden in your JSP with <%@ page isELIgnored ="false" %>
