I'm new to JSTL/EL programing, and I would like to know your opinion about it... What do you and java community think about it? is it usefull? does it really worth? should I learn this technology? thanks, in advance.
In my opinion, if you want to use JSP effectively, then learning JSTL and EL should be very high on your list of priorities. Both these technologies help to simplify the design of pages by removing the need for clumsy "scriptlets". Simpler page designs are more maintainable, have less "copy and paste", and are easier to use with general HTML page-creation tools such as Dreamweaver.
