Thanks for your quick reply.
I started learning servlets and JSPs over a month ago so I have only the basic knowledge of servlets.
I want to read, understand and start writing my code using JSTL and EL but these were not explained to us when I took a course for Java.
In fact, the instructor coded the whole JSP with scriplets.(Though she did tell us it was a bad practice)
I started reading Head First Servlets and JSP by Kathy Seirra by honestly, I was a bit intimidated by the book - its really tough.
It would be so kind of you to prescribe some reading material??
I went to tutorials point (for JSTL) but I just cannot seem to install the jar files that are required.
