Hi all,

I have returned a collection of objects and am using the iterate tag to loop through them and display there names in a table.

However, intsead of displaying them like this:
onject 1
object 2
object 3
object 4

I would like to display them as this

object 1 object 2
object 3 object 4

Does anyone know of a good way of doing this?

Is there anyway you can specify if commands in the iterate tag and access the counter used by the tag?
This way I could test the following

if(counter mod 2 == 0) then insert new row

thank you

I suggest moving to JSTL.

yeah the jstl c:forEach works or you can use the index attribute in your current logic:iterate, you can do your mod test on that
I agree. Here's the link:
