Subject EL expression not evaluating
Date Mon, 06 Sep 2004 13:32:50 GMT
Hi - I am building a blog in the JSP and JSTL and EL and Tomcat and 

  So far I have installed Tomcat 5, with MySQL 4.x.x, and the Jakarta 
Core Tags version 2, all seems to be functioning. I am using Intellij 
IDEA 4.5 as my IDE. Now all seems to be running fine, no errors, 
Intellij IDEA is configured and sees what it needs, and look happy.

  Problem 01 - My EL expressions in my <c:out value="${some Expression}" 
/> are not being evaluated, they look right but the expressions are 
just printed out on the screen like this ${some Expression} as plain 
text. Now it is not a problem with my tags because my <c:choose> tags 
and others work fine. So it looks my core tags are working, but why are 
my expressions not being executed?

  Here is the page any suggestions?



<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/tld/c.tld" prefix="c" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/tld/sql.tld" prefix="sql" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/tld/fmt.tld" prefix="fmt" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/tld/x.tld" prefix="x" %>
