Struts: logic tags on non-bean entities (Strings).

Howdy. As usual, I figured out one problem only to run into another.

Is there anyway I can use "logic:equal" to compare two Strings in a .jsp page?

I'd like to use it to see if a parameter that I'm passing to a tile has a certain value.

I've been trying logic:equal paramater ="tiles:get name='myParamater'" value ="myTestValue", but that hasn't been working. I've also tried getAsString with the same results.

Anyone have any ideas? Is there a way I could use some inpage Java to solve this? (Since I can't assign anything dynamically, I don't really think so though).

Karl,
You could use bean efine to get the first string in a bean.

Is the only solution then to actually create a bean for which to test? Methinks the logic tag could do with an upgrade.

Thanks for the response, I'll give that a try.
