<c:set var="tooltip" value="${bean.notes}" />
<c:set var="showtext" value="${fn:substring(bean.notes, 0, 60)}..." />

It turns out that fn:substring(bean.notes, 0, 60) mutates the String bean.notes so tooltip also ends up being truncated.

This is different behaviour from scriptlet code..

<%
String tooltip = bean.getNotes();
String showtext = bean.getNotes().substring(0, 60);
%>

In above tooltip will not be truncated (which is the expected behaviour).

Has anyone else seen this or its just a bug in the app server (Resin)?

It works for me running Tomcat 5.
This is the page I put together to test it.

I also do not observe this behavior either under Tomcat 5.0.25 or under Resin 3.0.14.

What version of Resin are you running?
 
But how did the elephant get like that? What did you do? I think all we can do now is read this tiny ad:
