Hi,

The lastName property is "Smith Jones", but only "Smith" is displayed.

When I view the browser source I see

so in html the quotes are missing as in value="Smith Jones"

When I save the html and change it to

"Smith Jones" is displayed properly.

Lines 26 and 27 contain is where the issue is.

I have also tried using
value='<jsp:getProperty name="employee" property="lastName" />'
that I found when googling jsp:getproperty truncates bean data at first blank.

How do I get the quotes into the property?

Thanks,

Lou

The highest level observation is that using scriptlets and antiques like <jsp:getProperty> is about 10 years out of date.

But the easy answer is: value="<jsp:getProperty name="employee" property="lastName"/>">

The quotes should be in the template text, not in the value of the property.

I suppose it would help too if I change the correct source file.

Doh!

No Emoticons for slapping myself in the forhead.

So Bear, what is the 2011 way?

Since the inception of JSP 2 in 2002, the JSTL and EL should be used in place of scriptlets and the old property actions.
