This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I've been lurking around this site for a while now , and I would like to think that I know a thing or two about Java. Unfortunately, I am new to dealing with TLD files and EL.
Basically, I'm trying to call a method on a jsp page. Originally I used a scriptlet, but I heard that was bad programming practice and I am now switching my code to JSTL. I still need to call that method, however.
#1: It belongs in a servlet, rather than a JSP. Model1 vs Model2/MVC #2: Your method could possibly be improved by passing in an object rather than all of these related parameters.
ie addDoi(DoiObject doi)
where DoiObject has attributes of input, type etc etc as applicable.
Once you have that object, the majority of those <c:set> commands you have can probably be made redundant, as you can then populate the bean automagically from request parameters (either using a framework, or just a jsp:useBean and jsp:setProperty)

This is the first time I've ever seen the term "freeze-drying" used to refer to the practice of crypticizing names... I like it Does this also apply to such classics as "pkgNbr", "bktCd", "pktSz", "trkWt", "trkLn" and other vowel-phobic names? (Translations: packageNumber, bracketCode, packetSize, truckWeight, trackLength).
