Subject RE: Escaping quotes in form fields - c:out doesn't see my variabl e
Date Tue, 04 Feb 2003 11:24:56 GMT
Sure, book.getTitle() is the public method, but that's translated into
${book.title} for JSTL.
JSTL is smart enough to know that ${book.title} corresponds to
book.getTitle(). The only thing that might not have happened is that you set
the reference to your object as "book" in your request context.
