iterating ArrayList in forEach

I am new to JSTL, trying out some examples on EL.
Have set an ArrayList to request/session in Servlet.
Am trying to iterate the List in JSP using c:forEach.

Have used:
JSTL1.1, JSP2.0, Servlets2.4, Tomcat5.x


Servlet:
req.setAttribute("testattribute", userList);
sessionObj.setAttribute("userlist", userList);
//userList is the ArrayList

JSP:
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>
<%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jstl/core" prefix="c" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>Insert title here</title>
</head>
<body>
${userlist}
<br />
${testattribute}

<br/>

<c:forEach var="product"
items="$(testattribute}">
<tr><td>${product}</td></tr>
</c:forEach>

</body>
</html>


Output:
[admin, superuser, user, enduser]
[admin, superuser, user, enduser]
$(testattribute}

Its not looping with the request attribute value.
Can you let me know, whats wrong in the above code?

Thanks

ya.... I overlooked it.
I tried changing as below:
<c:forEach var="product" items="${testattribute}">
<tr><td>${product}</td></tr>
</c:forEach>

now I am getting error:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException:
According to TLD or attribute directive in tag file, attribute items does not accept any expressions
Am getting error @ <c:forEach> line.

Hi ,

that means your "testattribute" is not an array/list object...

please post your testattribute values which are in servlet

thanks & regards,

i am trying an example for EL.
Here is the code snippet frm Servlet:

ArrayList userList = null;
userList = new ArrayList();
userList.add("admin");
userList.add("superuser");
userList.add("user");
userList.add("enduser");

sessionObj.setAttribute("userlist", userList);
req.setAttribute("testattribute", userList);

${testattribute} in JSP, is displaying all the values in the ArrayList.
But the c:forEach is not working.
I tried doing it with HashMap as well that also didnt work.
I have downloaded the jstl.jar and standard.jar for JSTL1.1.
And extracted the .tld files from standard.jar.
Do I have to add any other jar or tld file?

Hey it worked..... Thanks

I have added the ELEnable code in web.xml.
<jsp-config>
<jsp-property-group>
<url-pattern>*.jsp</url-pattern>
<el-enabled>true</el-enabled>
<scripting-enabled>true</scripting-enabled>
</jsp-property-group>
</jsp-config>

I dont know why thats not working.

I have one doubt:
For every page do I have to add isELIgnored="false"?

I read some where that in JSP2.0 by default:
<%@ page isELIgnored="false" %> <!-- default for JSP 2.0 -->
If we are using JSP1.2, then we have to set the value as false for EL externally.

I am using JSP2.0. But still code not working without isELIgnored=false.

And also we have two options to set the EL flag either in web.xml or in page directive in JSP. Tried adding it in web.xml, its not working.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<web-app xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/web-app_2_4.xsd"
version="2.4">

<jsp-config>
<jsp-property-group>
<url-pattern>*.jsp</url-pattern>
<el-enabled>true</el-enabled>
<scripting-enabled>true</scripting-enabled>
</jsp-property-group>
</jsp-config>

</web-app>
