jstl and tiles

Can I check the value of a tile:getAsString from a jstl tag. I have tried the following c:if however it is giving me a servlet exception

The exception thrown is as follows:

Basically I am using tiles to determine if a page should have a banner or not. I want that if in tiles-defs.xml the user does not set the tile element for the banner, then on the jsp page it does not try to load the image for it.

I do not know if there a simpler way to do this.

Thanks and Regards,

You cannot use a custom action as the attribute of another custom action, or as an EL expression.

So is there a way how I can solve this?

Like putting the value of the tile expression inside a varialble that can be handled inside the jstl tag?

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
