Subject [Struts-Atlanta] Next meeting
Date Fri, 11 Jul 2003 18:28:39 GMT
As some of you may already be aware, the mid-month meeting (MDE Testdrive) 
scheduled for July 15th has been cancelled due to an unexpected business trip 
by our presenter David Zygmont.

However, we are still on for the JSTL presentation by Bill Siggelkow on July 
29, 2003.

I haven't updated the web site yet, but here's the vitals:

(Oh and don't forget to join us for a drink before the meeting!!!)

Bill Siggelkow is a senior technical lead with Mirant Corporation.  He has
over 18 years of applications development -- 7 of those years devoted to
Java/J2EE.  Bill pioneered the introduction of Struts at Mirant and helped
establish Struts as the preferred framework for Java-based web

Prior to joining Mirant, he served as technical architect and lead
developer for CoreCommerce -- playing a central role in the design and
development of the company's core product -- a J2EE-based
business-to-business software platform.  Bill holds a Bachelor's degree in
Industrial Engineering from Georgia Tech.

JSTL, the JSP Standard Tag Library, provides a standard set of JSP actions
that will be useful to most any JSP-based web application.  JSTL's tag
libraries provides custom actions for conditional processing, looping,
internationalization, XML processing, and database access.  JSTL is
designed to relieve the JSP author from resorting to hard-to-maintain JSP 
scripting elements and embedded Java.  In addition, JSTL introduces a 
powerful new expression language known as "EL".  The Struts-EL tag library 
provides an implementation of the Struts tags that support this new language.  
Bill will be providing a detailed overview of both JSTL and Struts-EL.
