I am trying to do the exercise given in pg 379 - compose the EL for this output.

When I try to run the code, I am getting java.lang.StackOverflowError. I commented the EL code in my JSP and just put a template text and still got the same error.

What am I doing wrong? Pls. help.

I have the following code.


ELresult.jsp - You can see that I have commented the EL code and just put a template text for testing.

You are looping to ELresult.jsp, which will cause the StackOverflow.

ELform.html -submit-> PersonServlet -forward-> PersonServlet -forward-> PersonServlet -forward-> ......

Forwarding to the jsp file will cause the servlet to be called again and again. You should change your HTML action.
