Hello All,

I'm using Tomcat 4.1 for my preperation of SCWCD. I'm not being able to use EL expression.
What should I install to use ELs .Should I have to switch to Tomcat 5.0.

Yes, you should probably be using Tomcat 5, if you read the section entitled

The JavaServer Pages 2.0 Specification
from this article about Tomcat 5

You will see it says

"This new version of JSP is quite a bit larger due to its many new features, but aims to be backward-compatible with JSP 1.2. The most important addition to JSP 2.0 is the inclusion of the JavaServer Pages Expression Language (EL)."
