Implementors of JSTL and authors of JSP pages may find the The JavaServer Pages™ Standard Tag Library (JSTL) specification is the result. The JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Library (JSTL) is a component of the Java EE Web application development platform. It extends the JSP specification by. Apache hosts the Apache Standard Taglib, an implementation of the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL) specification. Various versions are.

Making database queries Accessing query results Performing database modifications Database transactions What all of the SQL actions have in common is that they work against a specific data source.

You can reach her at sspielman at switchbacksoftware. The page author can handle an unexpected value more in a user-friendly way, perhaps informing the user of the type of data that is expected or providing a sample of the format jsyl data required by specivication user.

While I can barely see the point being made for use of the SQL actions for prototyping or small-scale applications, I can’t ever validate the argument that you just don’t have the time to implement an MVC model correctly.

Having a defined specification for how the functionality is implemented means that a page author can learn these custom actions once and then use and reuse them on all future products on all application containers that support the specification.

Locale specirication resource bundles that include such actions as: With escapeXml defaulting to true:. Sue can also be found specificatlon at various technical conferences around the country.


The Java Community Process(SM) Program – communityprocess – final

General-purpose actions that are used to manipulate the scoped variables that might be found within a JSP. The specification can be found at http: What it means to use EL in attributes can be shown in the following example: This is similar to doing a ServletRequest.

This allows for jztl resulting evaluation to be sent to the JspWriter. The community has asked for it, the community has gotten it. All of the standard and common operators are available. It defaults to true. Using separate TLDs to expose the tags, the functionality for each set of actions is apparent and makes more sense.

To address both of these functional areas, let’s first take a cursory look at what pieces are involved in creating international applications.

This set of common spevification has come about through the input of the various members of the expert group. Using separate TLDs to expose the tags, the functionality for each set of actions is apparent and makes more. Then we’ll look at how these pieces can be put to work using the various actions available in the JSTL.

These libraries are defined by the Tag Library Descriptor files. Using paramValues is particularly useful if you have a form with check boxes or for some other reason a parameter might have multiple values like a multiselect box.

This includes pagerequestsession ,or application scope. You can use expressions in the value attribute.

Wouldn’t it be great if the effort required to internationalize your application could be reduced to zero? Let’s examine how the data source is set up and configured. Why then are these actions even provided in the JSTL?


To sum up for now, the layout of the JSTL is straightforward. Luckily, the internationalization and formatting actions provided in the JSTL are a comprehensive set of actions that can be used to minimize the headaches of having to internationalize your application. What it means to use EL in attributes can be shown in the following example:. Then we’ll a look at how to use the actions in situations where their use would be appropriate.

In this chapter, we’ll explore these internationalization actions. With escapeXml set to false:.

Before we dive into the various functional areas in the JSTL, we should start with the expression language. This capability is controlled by the escapeXml attribute. Perform a multiplication operation specifidation show that the type is correct: If a parameter that represents the month is passed in the specigication as a Stringthe value of the month variable will be correct because the String will be coerced to the correct type when used.

There are quite a few implicit objects exposed through the EL.

If you are careful about how you code your SQL actions, it should be easy enough to pull out the code and put it into classes that represent the Model interaction at a later point.
