I know it's considered poor form to dredge up old topics,

[Edit: this question didn;t have mucht o do with the topic on which it was posted so it's been split off as its own topic.]

but I was curious to know how the EL spec handles is methods when the method name does not follow standard camel casing?

Basically, I have a class with a method isABC. Would I access that in JSTL as object.abc or object.aBC?

I'd simply rename the method.

What happened when you tried the variations that you posted?

I believe it would actually translate as object.ABC

The method name handling is the standard java handling as documented in the Java API for the java.beans.Introspector decapitalize method.
