I am preparing for SCWCD, and started reading and practicing Head first Servlets & JSP.
While working with EL expressions I am facing a problem.
Here is my web.xml



in my JSP
Calling Start continue ... ${myList[1]} // is not evaluating EL expression untill I place page header like this "<%@ page isELIgnored="false" %>"

Please tell me how to work it from DD.
