Subject RE: How to get a <xtags:valueOf.../> value

But I have a problem. I'm using Tomcat 3.2.2 which is JSP 1.1 compliant
and I can't change it. I had this problem when I first started with JSTL.
To me JSTL is far better than xtags but with the limitation of having Tomcat
I went on using xtags.
Can I do what I want using only xtags?

You can download our JSTL implementation from

Then, once you follow the instructions in the package to install JSTL into
your web application, simply include

Note that JSTL provides an XML-manipulation tag library; you might
consider using that instead of XTags.  (Note that JSTL requires a JSP 1.2
container, while XTags continues to run successfully on the old JSP 1.1.)
One advantage of switching to JSTL is that you can be sure the tags are
supported on every container, and individual containers can recognize the
tags and optimize their implementations.
