Subject EL in input taglib
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2002 20:39:47 GMT
Hello,

Are there any plans to have EL support in the input taglib to ease
integration with the JSTL tags.  I know EL support has been added to the
strings taglib (which has made using JSTL much cleaner and easier).  What
is the current stance on adding EL support to other taglibs?  Are there
any decent servlet engines out there yet that support JSTL natively?

It is much cleaner to do
...
Date:
<input:text name="date" default="${curDate.rows[0].date}"/>
...

or alternatively nested tags could be added:
...
Date:
<input:text name="date">
  <input:default>
    <c:out value="${curDate.rows[0].date}"/>
  </input:default>
</input:text>
...

than
...
Date:
<input:text name="date"
default='<%org.apache.taglibs.standard.lang.support.ExpressionEvaluatorManager.evaluate("curDate",
"${curDate.rows[0].date}", String.class, null, pageContext
).toString()%>'/>
...

I would be willing to make the changes.

Thanks,
Grant
