Should work then. I use it regularly on Tomcat 5 and Resin 3.
Is your web.xml declared as a Servlets 2.4 deployment descriptor? If not, the EL shouldn't be enabled on the pages at all, but I don't know how closely weblogic follows the JSP 2.0 spec and it might just be using some weird pre-JSP 2.0 compatability mode.

I don't have an entry for Servlets 2.4 descriptor.
