I have the following code:

The Line i am having problem with is:

I have created an EL function that accepts two strings and tells whether the msg_id(which is first argument) has been read by the emp_id(which is the second id and has been hard -coded here)

but on executing the jsp i get the following error:

I have tested my EL function and there is not problem with it .. as if i call the EL function with both the values hardcoded eg. ${readStatus:GetUpdateReadStatus("ab12","123456")
it prints the result , "READ" or "NOT READ"
the problem i having with is giving the value at runtime

I would appreciate any help

Try it this way:

This is a single EL xpression, so you don't need a second set of EL delimiters (${}).
