Dear dudes,
My tomcat 5.5 container is not able to evaluate the EL expression
S{person.name}
It simply presents ${person.name} as response

I have a bean named Person which has a property name:



This EL expression is not evaluated by the container.
I want the output to be :

My name is eklavya

Any help in this regard will be appreciated.
