I am retrieving data from data base and displaying the same in a jsp in String format.
but when there is no entry for the corresponding field it is getting displayed as null in the jsp.
How can I avoid that ?
I need to display an empty field if the corresponding value is null.

Use if condition and put empty where it is null.

You can have a few utility methods defined in some utility class to get around this issue or anyother related issues.

Or using JSTL is your best bet.
I agree. Here's the link:
