Hi All,

I want to use enum in jsp using EL & JSTL, below is code,



above code OWN is hardcoded string in EL,
Instead of using hardcoded string want to use a enum PaymentOerationType having all possible values of payment type.
I am not able to use PaymentOerationType.OWN directly in EL.

How can I deal with emuns in EL or JSTL?

You cannot directly access the enum. What you can dois to use the values() method of the enum to gather the enum values into a Map or List and use it on the page by placing it in request scope.

Hi Bear,

Thanks for reply.

It worked way you told, but just one question in my mind why EL or JSTL does not support a enum?

Dunno. They didn't consult me during the specification phase.
