Hi all,

I am using Struts 1.3.8 and want to use EL expression in my Jsp page.
The application is using a bean "code.AddressForm" and action "code.AddressAction" which are defined in struts-config.xml file. The problem is that when i want to use EL it displays the expression itself. I dont know what is missing, but struts bean tag displays the bean property.

please help.

Jsp code:

The output is:

The lib folder contains the following jar files:

thanks in advance..


Best regards,<br /> <br />vanchin

I suspect the problem here is that you've declared your project as a Servlet 1.3 project instead of a Servlet 1.4 project. You can verify whether or not this is the case by looking at the DTD reference in your web.xml file.

In a Servlet 1.3 project, EL expressions are not allowed except inside JSTL tags such as <cut>.

you can try:

<%@ page pageEncoding="UTF-8" isELIgnore="false" %>
