Need dynamic tile for meta data or

Hi, I have the following meta information in a metadata.jsp tile that I must include in all my JSP's. The problem is that some pages have meta data that is dynamic and comes from a database. I need a way to load the data from the database and pre-populate the meta information tile before the tile is added on the template. Do I use the tiles controller for this. Any suggestions welcome. P.S. I am using Struts 1.2, JSTL 1.1.

You might want to have a look at this link. This technique was posted as a way to insert JavaScript .js files, but I think it would apply to <meta> tags as well.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
