[Tutorial] Java Standard Tag Library

Post by Kajun »

Naw, not written by me <surprise surprise> but by our anthropophaginian friend DaBeeeenster.

http://www.sitepoint.com/article/1243
The Java Standard Tag Library (or JSTL) is nothing more than a Java Tag Library that provides us with a number of Standard functions. Ok, ok -- put another way, the JSTL is going to make your quagmire of JSP script and HTML look like regular plain old HTML pages again. And that is a good thing. Your pages will be more readable (no more scriptlets), your code architecture will become a lot cleaner (no more HTML in your JavaBean classes) and, best of all, the front end developers you work with will invite you to the pub at lunchtime like they used to.
Kajun is awaiting approval.

Aye, I might have to look at some JSP, it looks much more interesting and fun than PHP or JScript ASP.

OO r00lz. :)

Aye scripting languages are, um, scripting languages.

JSP is uber powerful.

Oh, I knew that. I've tended to avoid JSP in the past simply because I don't know much about it and/or didn't know Java.
