hai ,
I am in a great confusion regarding EL and JSTL.Can somebody tell me whether we are using EL and JSTL in developing projects or we are studying it only for the sake of Certification.And also I found EL and JSTL are server dependent because JBOSS 4.0.2 is not supporting EL and JSTL .
Please explain me whether we are using only normal JSP for development or EL & JSTL are also used in development purpose?
Thanks in advance.


Regards,
Udhaya

They certainly are being used in production.
Like with any newer feature in J2EE it will take some time for all the containers to catch up. Then it will take some more time for existing apps migrate to the newer contaiers (some never will).

Those of us who are lucky enough to be using Tomcat in production have been enjoying the features of JSP 2.0 for some time now.

"udhaya kp",

There aren't may rules that have been put into place here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!

Yes, the person responsible for specifying how your pages should be created, notwithstanding psychics.

And also I found EL and JSTL are server dependent because JBOSS 4.0.2 is not supporting EL and JSTL.


Is something "server dependent" if it doesn't ship with an application server. EL and JSTL work with any server that supports JSP 2.0 and Servlet 2.4 and any version of JBoss > 3.2.X will work fine. You may have to drop one or two jars in your path, but that's it.
