hi ,

yes el treates "2" as integer for the comparison. you should keep few things in mind when you come across such questions

1. EL is not java.

2 el is forgiving. it will coerce the operands to fit into the context of operators.

there are vastly different number of combinations of such expressions possible in EL . the best way to do is to make a small program and play with such expressions. cook your own expression , see the results and then analyse it.

regards
Gurpreet
