The problem with your code is mainly with the attribute items in the <c:forEach>. You are using the EL expression ${myList}. This means that an attribute should exist in one of the scopes (page, request, session or application).

In your code you only declared a local variable String[] called "myList". Thus, you must set the attribute in any one of the scopes.
pageContext.setAttribute("myList", myList)
request.setAttribute("myList", myList)
session.setAttribute("myList", myList)
application.setAttribute("myList", myList)
or any one of the following:
pageContext.setAttribute("myList", myList, pageContext.REQUEST_SCOPE);
pageContext.setAttribute("myList", myList, pageContext.SESSION_SCOPE);
pageContext.setAttribute("myList", myList, pageContext.APPLICATION_SCOPE);
