Subject RE: bean defines
Date Fri, 18 Jun 2004 16:33:58 GMT
<bean:define> will create a new local variable in the jsp. You can access
this variable in a scriptlet or an RT expression. <c:out> is looking for a
scoped *attribute* (not a variable) with that name, so it will fail.

If you look at the servlet source generated from your jsp source you should
see what I'm talking about.

You can use <c:set> to create a scoped attribute which is accessible from
<c:out>, or you could use the c-rt taglib.
