Now the problem is i am using an open source java script grid to display my data this grid also requires the name of the columns.

Like HTML markup, JavaScript code is just template text in the JSP. So you can use the JSTL anywhere on the page and the values will be substituted prior to sending the HTML to the browser.

What does not happen is that the JSTL be evaluated on the client as the JavaScript is running. Remember that all a JSP is is a template for an HTML page.
