el-ignored doubt

I am trying to send param values to included jsp from main jsp using jsp:include and jsp aram standard actions. Included jsp is named as header.jspf. But when I try to display param attribute in the included jspf, it is not evaluating EL and the expression is printed as it is.
Here is my initparam.jsp which is calling an included jsp.[/CODE][/CODE][code]
<html><body>Passing parameters to included file using jsp aram
<jsp:include page="header.jspf">
<jsp aram name="jspName" value="initparam"/>

</html> [/code]

Here is included jsp named as header.jspf
[code] <h1> Header:SCWCD </h1>
${param.jspName} [/code]

I am able to see the param attribute value in the result,if I specify el-ignored to be "false" in DD for url pattern of type .jspf
[code] <jsp-config>

My questions is since el-ignored is false by default, why is EL not getting evaluated . and why is it ignoring EL in the included fragment?

Should we specifically mention not to ignore EL in DD?

Try renaming your file to Header.jsp (and not setting el-ignoreg in jsp-config). My bet is that it will work, but still I don't know why. I have had the same problem before and it seems to be solved by changing the jspf extension. A configuration problem in Tomcat? I don't know.

Yes ST,
It is working with jsp. I tried that. Not sure what is different with .jspf
I agree. Here's the link:
