If you havent a heard a name that doesnt make it fictious. Did i say
can that be a name? no i didnt, cause i aint heard all the names in the world.
As Far as expanding Last name is concerned. I dont have one, surprised well in our part of the world many people dont. I wouldnt want to expand my middle name many would not like it? Hence just the intial to differentiate it from other Vikrams if you have any, and i am sure you have plenty.
Touche'. But check the naming rules anyway, since we did allow for single-name-only people. What we're striving for is to be professional (don't let the moth-eaten moose head fool you), and so we have a certain set of rules which have to take into account that it's a very big world. And it could be worse - so many people in China have the surname "Wang" that they've been forced to go to 3 names!
But in answer to your question: mix JSTL and JSF at your peril. That's especially true of iterative operations, but it's risky in any case. There are efforts to make the two play better together, but much remains to be done.
You may be attempting to use the wrong approach. For example, instead of a JSTL conditional wrapping of a set of buttons, here's how I handle context-sensitve button display:
JSF is more abstract than JSTL. In most cases, JSF pages should be display-oriented and logic should be handled at the backing bean level.

Thanks that helped. I made some changes to the backing bean and used the rendered attribute.
