Subject EL expressions not evaluation in tag library
Date Wed, 02 Sep 2009 09:03:28 GMT

Hi All, 

We are using EL expression in one of our tag libraries (.tag files), like {
	<input type="text" id="${id}">

1. Made sure that servlets 2.4 is enabled in webapp web.xml like 
	<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
	<web-app xmlns=""
xmlns:xsi="" version="2.4"

2. Following jars are available in WEB-INF/lib (in addition to other
standard jars)
	1. javaee.jar
	2. standard.jar
	3. jstl.jar
	4. struts-el-1.2.4.jar

Now, when we use EL in my JSP it is getting evaluated and able to see proper
result. But the EL in tag libraries (as shown above) are not getting

We are using Tomcat 5.5 with Java1.5. There is more than one webapp running
under same tomcat. All other webapps runs with servlets specification 2.3 (
I mean different DOCTYPE in web.xml)

Can you help in identifying the reason for EL not getting executed ONLY in
tag libraries?
