Subject EL not processed by default with Tomcat 5.0.19
Date Mon, 07 Jun 2004 06:22:51 GMT
Here's my page:

<% pageContext.getRequest().setAttribute("name", "hello world"); %>
Name: ${name}

This prints "Name: ${name}". According to the JSP spec, with Servlet
containers supporting 2.4, EL should be processed by default, but it isn't
being done. So I added the following to my web.xml:


This seems to be ignored, as I am still getting the same incorrect output.
Only if I add the following at the top of each page, does it work: <%@ page
isELIgnored="false" %>

Is there any way I can get this to work without having to have this
declaration at the top of every page?
