is this statement true: "the page directive <%@ page isELIgnored="true"%> will only turn off EL Evaluation if the DD declares a <el-ignored>true<el-ignored> element within the URL pattern that includes this jsp"

More priority is given to the page directive isELIgnored
U can ignore the EL in the whole application and U can enable in the specific pages

the page directive overrides the values specified in the DD. therefore if this attribute is mentioned in the jsp, the EL evaluation will unconditionally depend on the value of the attribute. in other words, if there's a <%@ page isELIgnored="true" then EL is igrnored if its value is false, it is evaluated- as simple as that, the only variations come when there's no isELIgnored attribute mentioned in the page directive, in which case, the value in the DD decides what is to happen- and if even that is absent, the default value is taken- i.e EL IS evaluated.
