Subject Problem with tutorial
Date Sat, 23 Nov 2013 22:42:33 GMT
I am new to struts and going through the
tutorial. I have a problem where a var is not expanded.


		<s:url action="hello" var="helloLink">
			<s:param name="userName">Bruce Phillips</s:param>

		<a href="${helloLink}">Hello Bruce Phillips</a>

Normally, when hovering the produced link I should see:

What I see is: http://localhost:8080/basic_struts/$%7B helloLink%7D

As you can see, the var is not expanded and the server returns the href as
is, instead of expanding it to the action="hello" url specification.

I run Tomcat 7, with struts

Some suggested to use ELIgnored="false" and isELIgnored="false" in the Page
directive, but those attributes are not regocnized (Eclipse draws yellow
doodles under it ).

Thank you,
