I am trying to use jstl in my application.

jstl is working fine untill I am using EL. The moment I am using El, I am getting this exception.

I am trying to do this simple operation

<c:set value="10" var="num" scope="request"></c:set>
<c:out value="${num}"></c:out>
and I am getting this exception.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am using JSTL 1.1 (J2EE 1.4/JSP 2.0)

<%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core"; %>

Thanks
Naveed
