1. I have a JSP page which should display a table with 2 columns : Code and Role
2. The data to be displayed in these 2 columns comes from a servlet which calls a DAO class.
3. The DAO class executes a select query and retrieves the data from database table and sets the data in an Arraylist jobList.
4.The ArrayList is passed back to the controller.
5. How do I display the values in this ArrayList as a table using the JTSL tags in the JSP.

Please let me know if I were to use ,<c:forEach> tag,how do I set the values using this tag.

Where is your code? What problems are you having with it?

Please ShowSomeEffort rather than expect the forum to provide you with code.

1.Input jsp page:

2. Javascript:

3. Conroller: Spring MVC framework

The above abcList contains the list of values

4. This modaltarget is configured in tiles-config.xml, file which routes the output jsp page

5.The service layer which returns an Arraylist calls Dao class

6. Dao class:
This class contains the JDBC logic select query to retrieve the data from the database table.The data Code and Role columns are added to a VO object and added to a Arraylist.

7. The business logic is fine.But I have modaltarget.jsp page which must display the retrieved values from Dao as a table ,as a list of values in a table using JSTL.

I cannot hardcode te values as shown above.I have to display the retrieved values from Dao from an ArrayList into this jsp.
Since I am new to JSTL,how do I output the values onto the jsp page using JSTL tags.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
