Hi,

Is there any JSTL tag which allows to create a new vairable of both Object and permitive data type.. for example

we can do this with scripting..

<% Integer i=new Integer(45) %>
<% int j=89; %>

but do we have a tag to do the same thing.. can we use <c:set>

please help..

Why would you need a numeric value to be a primitive type?

We can either set the value of a scoped variable using <c:set value="value" [scope]/> or set the property of a target object.

My point is: scoped variables can only be of object types, not primitives. But from the point of view of the JSTL, EL and the rest of the page, who cares?
