If i am using Struts Tags then why should i use JSTL with Struts?

In my opinion, JSTL along with EL is more powerful than struts tags.

for ex,
struts tags bean:equal, bean:notEqual, bean:greaterThan, bean:lessThan, bean resent, bean:greaterEqual, bean:lessEqual can be replaced by single core:if JSTL tag along with EL.

So It is preferable to use JSTL EL whenever there is a functional equivalent JSTL EL available for Struts tags.
