Subject Re: using Constants from JSTL .....
Date Wed, 07 Jul 2004 18:12:02 GMT
Just as an addition I can do this

<jsp:useBean id="Constants" class="ie.jestate.web.Constants"/>

<c:set var="emailNotifications" value="${EMAIL_NOTIFICATIONS}"></c:set>

<c:out value="${emailNotifications.priceRangeStart}"/>
<c:out value="${emailNotifications.priceRangeEnd}"/>
<c:forEach items="${emailNotifications.urbanAreas}" var="urbanArea">
    <c:out value="${}"/>

And it works fine, but really what I am trying to get here is the value 
of using Constants in
both my Actions and my ( JSTL based ) jsp's.

Perhaps this is just something that never occured to the writers of the 
JSTL spec ?
