Subject RE: What's the problem with Tomcat 4.1.29 and Switch?
Date Tue, 24 Feb 2004 08:41:32 GMT
No, the first solution should't work:

    <% break; %>
<% case 2: %>

Will be tranformed to something like:

     break;
     out.print("\n");
   case 2:

That doesn't look like valid java syntax to me.

These will work:

<%   break; 
   case 2: 
%>

    <% break; 
%><% case 2: %>

However, I prefer the JSTL solution.
(But can't use it, a we still use JSP 1.0)
