Subject [standard] jstl (lang) comments/questions
Date Wed, 06 Mar 2002 12:48:03 GMT
Hi all,

playing around with the recently committed jstl expression language, I first 
want to say that it's looking very nice.

Just a couple comments:
- I'd love to see support for the conditional-operator, ie
"(condition) ? (expr) : (expr)". It would very much help avoiding many lengthy 
<c:choose> constructs.
- How should I do stuff like getting the context-path or server-info. I was 
assuming I could just do ${application.contextPath}, but it seems that only the 
attributes are accessible through the implicit objects.

On a related note: I find the support for handling web-app internal links quite 
lacking: where's support for prepending relative links with the context-path and 
also 'rewriting' relative URLs, etc. ? Have I missed something obvious ?
