formating lines in jsp

How can I print line by line in a JSP page? When I print using out.println(), it prints in the same line with the previous line.

Thanks in Advanced!

That's because you should be outputting HTML. What does HTML do with a newline? Ignores it.

(And why are you generating HTML with an out.println()???)

Why do you use out.println() in a JSP? Use of scriptlets in JSP is discouraged. As far your question goes, having a look at the container generated servlet code for your JSP will clear your doubt.

I need print every book in a line, but here, it prints in the same line. What is the solution?

No, really: output HTML. How do you get a line break in HTML?

Why don't you use JSTL instead of scriptlets...

using scriptlets in your jsp pages are outdated now ....

this link may help you to convert your code using JSTL

If you MUST use scriptlets (which you shouldn't), you can import classes into your JSP by using the page directive. That way, you don't have to write the fully-qualified names of all the classes. For example:


SCJP 6 || SCWCD 5

As a newbie, form good habits now. No java code (scriptlets) in JSPs.

Yes, your JSPs should use the JSTL and the EL in place of old-fashioned scriptlets.

If you need more power, that's where more advanced capabilities such as custom tags, tag files, and EL functions come in.
