simple struts conditional?

All I want to do is something like this in my jsp:

Is there any struts logic tag (or any other easy way) that can handle this? I was looking at <logic:equals>, so I'd have something like

But based on the documentation I can't find what some_attribute can be. Every choice seems to refer to some property of the bean, or request parameters, or cookie. There must be some way to simply compare it to a little snippet of java code as in the above, no?

Thanks for any help.

you need to treat SomeClass as a bean and the isSomeStaticMethod() as a method in that bean and pass that to your jsp.

you logic:equals then will have to have 2 additional attributes: name="beanIdReferToSomeClass" and property="someStaticMethod". your method must follow the javabean naming convention, that would be isSomeStaticMethod().

<logic:equal name="className" attribute="methodWhichReturnsTrueorfalse" value="true/false">

Write html/struts/jsp code in between the tag
I agree. Here's the link:
