Head first never mentions ${ notation in book.
is there any specific reason for not metioning $ notation ?


${bookDB.bookDetails.title}

Another way to retrieve component properties is to use the jsp:getProperty element. This element converts the value of the property into a String and inserts the value into the response stream:

<jsp:getProperty name="beanName" property="propName"/>
