Mixing JSTL and JSP?

Can I mix JSP code in with my JSTL? Can I access variables from the JSTL?

I would like to do something like....
<c:forEach var="theList" items="${sessionScope.results}">
<c:set var="previousList" value="${theList[0]}"/>
String reply = javaFunction(previousList);//<<< from JSTL? or ${previousList}
<c ut value="${theList[0]}"/>

Is there another way to do this (other than all JSP)?

yes, no, yes (in fact the way you display doesn't work).

Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
