Clarification on EL syntax

I have a question regarding an EL syntax that shows up in the IDE Eclipse I am using, but compiles and runs without any problem. Can anyone shed some light on that? This is the jsp and the error is only for the EL expression ${mine:rollIt()}. The other expression is fine.

Let's see:

1) it runs fine

2) Eclipse reports it as an error

So what's the correct answer?

a) Eclipse is the gospel and anything it says is wrong must be wrong

b) Eclipse is foo-barred when it come to JSP syntax
