You should be using the JSTL <c:if> pr <c:choose> tags in place of obsolete Java scriptlets. Syntax difficulties are just one of the very many reasons that Java scriptlets have been obsolete and discredited for over 12 years.

Hi,

You should avoid using scriptlets in your JSP. Anyhow, change <% } %> <% else %> to <% } else %>. This should solve your problem.
