Hi Alan, Can we use indexed properties without JSTL tag libraries ? I'm guessing we should be able to - we are far too into a project to implement JSTL tag libraries, but using request.getAttribute() or request.getParameter() should also work with indexed properties is what I'm assuming.
Thanks for the information, Mallika.

absolutely! you CAN use indexed properties without JSTL. don't confuse JSTL with struts-html though (you NEED to use this for indexed properties to work).
i am not sure what you meant by "using request.getParameter() and request.getAttribute()" though. in JSTL, you can access the JSTL implicit object 'requestScope' or 'param' respectively corresponding to the 2 methods you listed.
