JSP set and out

Hi All,

In my page I have:



And then later in the same page I have:



But in the page I see $title and not Scheduler. What's wrong?

TIA

What do you see if you use ${title} without <c:out>?

If the EL isn't being evaluated, chances are your web app is misconfigured. Check the JSP FAQ.

What do see in the View Source? Are the JSTL tags being evaluated at all?

By the way, following conventions is a good idea because no one gets confused when they look at your code. The core tags should be mapped to prefix c, not core.

Thanks! My web.xml didn't have any proper declarations in it. I changed it according the FAQ and I see it now correctly.
