Using EL

Hi All,

I am learning writing EL and the first step I did was printing one of EL implicit variable ${pageContext.request.requestURI}.

My JSP page looks like:



And the output is:
Request URI: ${pageContext.request.requestURI}

Please let me know why is it not evaluating the EL expression.

Thanks!

I just studied HFSJ and its written there that each application needs to have jstl.jar in its WEB-INF/lib.

I also removed it from jboss-home/server/default/lib and copied it in WEB-INF/lib, But still its not working

Got it finally!!!

The version was wrong(2.5) in web.xml for web-app tag

Thanks for the help. ServletsWebXml helped in finding out the reason.
