Question 6 of HFSJ says:

Given:
<%@ page isELIgnored="true" %>
What is the effect?

I selected the answer D: The JSP containing this directive should NOT have any Expression Language code evaluated by the JSP container.

However the answer is E: This page directive will only turn off EL evaluation if the DD declares a <el-ignored>true</el-ignored> element with a URL pattern that includes this JSP.

In the HFSJ book on page 320 it says that EL can be ignored either through a directive OR a DD element. So selecting the answer E suggests that I need to do both. Does anyone think this is an error, or have I misunderstood this question?

The answer given in the book is wrong. This error has been mentioned in HFS Errata...

Thanks for your quick reply. Can you show me where the errata is? I would hate to think that the book contains lots of wrong answers or information!

Thanks again.

I am looking at the errata on http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/headservletsjsp/errata/headservletsjsp.confirmed

However it's not mentioned there. Can you show me where it's mentioned?

Even I am not able to find the errata entry. I guess this error has been rectified in the new verion of the book. There are plenty of threads on this issue, The option you selected is the correct one...
