Hi folks,

A question on pg 336, HFSJ is
<%@ page isELIgnored="true" %>
What is the effect?

The answer marked goes:

"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"

--Wouldn't the directive ignore EL irrespective of whether its there in the DD or not.

Do comment.

Hi Yoshita,

The correct answer for that question is option D Jsp containing this directive should not have any EL code evaluated by the jsp container.

Please do check Head First Errata.

Thanks,
Lalit M.

Yoshita, you are correct in saying that the errata does not contain anything about this question. I too checked and found nothing.

I also think that the option D is correct.But nothing is mentioned in errata regarding pg 336
Lalit-please help up & let us know if you are referring to any other errata link.
