I ahve this....

the value of the 'value' attribute in fmt:formatDate should be a string as per documentation. channel_ts is a 'Date' object. Am I doing it wrong ?
should the value be channel_ts.toString() ???

That is incorrect. The spec correctly identifies the type as a java.util.Date.

Channel means something to smeone somewhere, basically just a xml root node, in my jsp response, I am more interested in someone confirming that teh jstl syntax I am using in combination with the EL on a Date object to always printin GMT values is correct and should work fine.

The issues isk, when I hit the jsp in a browser, the datand times seem to be formatted properly, but when it is hit in otherways (say in a flash client), the dates and times are not formatted. they seem to get the tostring() version of the dates and times. I just wanto double check that what I am doing in teh jsp is right.

Is the Flash client hitting it on a JSP-aware server?

Unless you've got some type of conditional processing going on, the JSP will render the same no matter what client makes the request. Are you sure that it's not the Flash client gumming up the works?

No clue.. totally frustrated with this.. probably I will just replace teh Date with preformatted stirng and do away with fmt tags altogether.

Next thing I'd do is to fetch a tool like Tamper Data for FireFox and look at the response text that's being returned to the browser.
