How can we implement the functionality of
if(){}else{} in struts tags???

I recommend to use JSTL tags.

Ex: <c:if>

The questions you are asking about Struts tags can all be answered by the Struts documentation.

There is a section for each of the various tag libraries in this link. For this question, look for the section entitled "Logic tags".

In answer to your specific question: Strus has an "if" (<logic:equals>) but no "else". That's why Vani and I both recommend using the JSTL tags over the Struts tags in this case.

With the logic tags you would have to use have to use two pairs of tags. You could use either a html:equal and html:notEqual pair or use a value="true" and value="false" pair. I agree that the JSTL tags are cleaner.
