Dear All ,

I am having a List<Menu> called menuList with 1 parent menu having 5 child menu objects. Menu object contains menuName . This list is placed in session scope.

I want to display the above list using jstl in jsp by table element.

Now my requirement of displaying the above list is per Row only 3 td elements should be there.

Use the varStatus attribute of the c:forEach tag. It will tell you the loop counter, so that you can close your row every 3 items.

It is not just like that, you will need to <c:if ... to test and control the condition you need.

Break out of, when your condition if meant.>

As Paul said, it's not just like that. Do you understand which properties are available through the varStatus ? If not, download the JSTL specification.
