Hi

I am facing problem while displaying the data (containing < ,> etc in the database) onto the jsp.

"&gt;" is displayed instead of ">"

Please let me know how to resolve this.

Hi,
I suggest you to use jstl, expecially <cut>

Hi,

I havent tried with <cut> tag

I am using <html:textarea> tag in which i am using the form field for displaying the data,
And the jsp is getting displayed from an ajax call.
So, not sure if i can use <cut> inside <html:textarea>

I am not sure abt the problem, as the similar type of code without an ajax call, and with normal <textarea> tag of html, and using request object,
its displaying the <, > etc.. properly..

please advise me on this.

Regards,
Srinivas

"srinivas knr",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!

"Srinivas K"

Your name still does not conform to the JavaRanch naming policy. In particular, you may not use an initial for your last name. Please correct it ASAP.

So..
It looks like this is a Struts app.
We have a Struts specific forum where this question will probably do better.
I'll move it there for you.
