Hi Guys,
I'm trying to learn JSp and servlets...need your help for that ...
I have an XML and i'm parsing that XML to get the value of some tags,I need to display the value of these tags in a JSP page,in a form of a table.
i have already written a java class which parses he XML .I'm stuck in intergrating that piece of code in JSP.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks in Advance.

The XML data comes as a String ...
Say XML has a tag<name>XYZ</name>
So i'm parsing the XML and getting the value as:String name=XYZ,Now this XYZ value. i need to display in JSP ..How do i do that ???

I tried both of these Links and gone through some of the tutorials but i could not figure out how do i integrate my class file to the JSP .
I know its quite Dumb of me to ask such basic questions,But could not help it as i have just started to learn JSP's and all.

I always recommend that novices to JSP read the following articles:
  • The Secret Life of JSPs
  • The Front Man

  • The combination addresses the concepts you need to address your issue.

    And be sure that any tutorials or other learning materials that you use are modern and up-to-date, focusing on the use of the JSTL and EL and not Java scriptlets (which have been discredited for almost a decade now).

    Hi All,
    Thanks a ton for your valuable suggestions.I finally succeeded in making the JSP and servlets.and now I'm trying a hands on on JSTL.
    Can any one please share some pointers to a descriptive documentation of the same or help me figuring out how to get the size of a data list using JSTL.
    My code looks something like:
    <c:forEach var="data" items="${requestScope.dataList}" >
    <tr>
    <td><cut value="${data.date}" /></td>
    <td><cut value="${data.mobileNumber}" /></td>
    <td><cut value="${data.msg}" /></td>

    </tr>
    </c:forEach>

    and I tried using <c:if test="${empty myObject.dataList}"> but I'm not able to get any output after putting this line of code.
    Can any one please let me know where am I going wrong?

    We'll need more info that n you are giving us. For example, what are the values of the scoped variables?

    Also, please be sure to disable smilies when posting JSP code.
