Chapter 16. Simplifying Access to Java Code: The JSP 2.0 Expression Language
Topics in This Chapter
JSP 2.0 introduced a shorthand language for evaluating and outputting the values of Java objects that are stored in standard locations. This expression language (EL) is one of the two most important new features of JSP 2.0; the other is the ability to define custom tags with JSP syntax instead of Java syntax. This chapter discusses the expression language; Volume 2 discusses the new tag library capabilities.
