Hi This is the question of HFSJ1.4 at page no.330 question no.6
Its answer is given E> .I want to know why not D>
question given in book is : Given: <%@ page isELIgnored="true" %> what is the effect ?(choose all that apply) A. Nothing ,this page directive in Not defined. B. The directive turns off the evaluation of Expression Language code by the JSP container in all of the web application 's JSPs C. The JSP containing this directive should be treated by the JSP container as a well-formed XML file. D. The JSP containing this directive should Not have any Expression Language code evaluated by the JSP container. E. This page directive will ONLY turn off EL evaluation if the DD declares a <el-ignored>true<el-ignored> element with a URL pattern that includes this JSP.
My view is if we dont mention <el-ignored>true/false..... in DD even then it will not evaluate EL expression given in our jsp page if we have above page directive[<%@ page isELIgnored="true" %>] in our jsp page because page directive takes priority over the DD setting. Please correct me if i am wrong.
