So I got the JSTL prac guide, diving in headfirst and converting my jsp scriptlet heavy code to JSTL ... and I have some questions.
for each page, I declare a String[] like so:

And later on in the code is a method that checks the String[] and compares it against some session values - that's not the part i'm worried about.
My question is, how would I do the above in JSTL, OR how would I do an equivalent with an ArrayList and JSTL?

Nevermind, it looks like c:set only works with javabeans or Maps

JSTL will work fine with arrays. The difficulties you are having probably stem from the fact that JSTL is generally unaware of sctipting elements and focuses primarily on context attributes.

so what then would be the proper syntax for adding an item to an ArrayList with c:set?
