I'm trying to make a dynamic table to fill with the values of a list.
It suposed to keep a count and if the count mod 3 = 0 it should add a new row else it should add a new column.
The code compiles, I get no errors, but the values aren't displayed, I simply get a blank page.
If I remove the if statement it works fine, so the problem isn't getting the list...

jsppage:



Any tips on how to handle this?

The best way to build tables in JSPs is the http://www.displaytag.org/1.2/ library, IMO. Hasn't been released in a long time, but it works just fine. (There's also a newer version at https://github.com/hazendaz/displaytag/releases, but it's not really required IMO.)

See http://www.displaytag.org/1.2/tut_basic.html. That's JSP-based so it has a

You need to define some columns, like that example shows.

Without knowing exactly what you tried we can't speculate on what might be going wrong.

Did you get the example to work? Maybe it's easier to work your way from running code towards solving your case.
