Refer to the JSP FAQ. It explains how to make sure that you are set up correctly for the JSTL and EL.

Specifically, look for the correct web.xml heading for your version.

Thanks Marimutu,

I wondered, why should we specify isELIgnored="false".

Does not EL is enabled by default?

The EL should be enabled by default if your web.xml is properly declared. Does adding isELignored makes things work?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
