Subject Re: Newbie help with Struts idiom: functional if/else tags
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2005 18:43:35 GMT
Use either Struts <logic:equal> or JSTL <c:if> or bare scriptlet. In
your particular case you can make the decision in the bean itself. Do
not print HTML tags from Java, this produces unmaintable and
unportable code.
