I've rarely used standard actions till now. I have a small question concerning it's usage. They are considered helpful when we want to print the properties of a javabean with the condition that those properties are either Strings or primitives. If those properties are themselves references to another javabean, then better use EL. Am I right on this?? One more question for this would be from the example that is given in the Head First book as below,
Now how to print the name of the Dog through the use of standard actions?
<jsp:useBean id="person" class="foo.Person" scope="request"/> Dog's name is: <jsp:getProperty name="person" property="dog" />
But the above line prints the object...how to get it print the actual Dog's name by just using the standard actions??
There was some post here that said we can do it and I asked that person to show that here...I guess he has removed his post from here. Anyways, I understood the fact and I have to switch over to EL. Thanks guys for the help!
