[Java Servlet] The road of Senri is also the fifth step from the first step


--Passing parameters between jsp ⇔ Servlet --Cookie / session management

What to do this time

--EL type --JSTL tag

Let's use EL type

EL expression (Expression Language) is a method that can briefly describe the passing of request parameters on the jsp side. Just write $ {parameter name}. (In the case of an object, $ {parameter name.property name})

When receiving and displaying the parameter named name on the jsp side,

mypage.jsp(until now)

  String username=request.getAttribute("name").toString();

I was going through a two-step process, but when I used the EL formula



Just write. The amount of description is reduced and it is easier to see, but the biggest merit is that you do not need to write java logic. It is also possible to write a simple expression such as $ {age> 20}, as it is labeled with EL "expression".

Let's use JSTL tag

In the previous section, EL expressions can be used, but processing such as loops and conditional branching must embed java code. That's where the tag library called JSTL comes in. A tag library is a group of files that can express java logic using tags like HTML, such as <forEach>.

Introduction method

JSTL is a free open source library provided by Apache.

-Apache Taglibs Downloads

    1. Open the above link and download ʻimpl, spec, jstl` from the jar files at the bottom of the page.
  1. Store the above three jar files in WEB-INF / lib of the project folder.
    1. Describe the following in the jsp file.


<%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" prefix="c"%>
  1. If the app version of web.xml is 3.0 or higher, rewrite it to 2.4. (I made it in 3.1 in this corner, but it seems that EL formula cannot be used in JSTL after 2.4. Inconvenient!)


<!-- 3.1 is commented out-->
<web-app xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
<web-app version="2.4"

By the way, the description method of web-app tag for each app version is described in detail on the following site. KATSUMI KOKUZAWA'S BLOG

How to use

--if statement


    <c:when test="${name == 'hato'}">Mr. Administrator, Hello</c:when>
    <c:when test="${name == ''}">Anonymous, Hello</c:when>
    <c:otherwise>General user's, Hello</c:when>
tag element Contents
choose - The content enclosed in this tag is a series of if statement blocks.
when - Equivalent to if else in an if statement.
when item If this item is true, the part enclosed in the tag is executed.
otherwise - Equivalent to else of if statement. Executed when there is no hit anywhere in when.

--for statement


List<String> list=Arrays.asList("one","two","three","four");


<c:forEach var="v" items="${list}" varStatus="list">
	${v} ${list.count}
	one 1
	two 2
	three 3
	four 4

<c:forEach begin="1" end="7" step="2" varStatus="c">
	hello ${c.count}
	hello 1
	hello 2
	hello 3
tag element Contents
forEach var Variables that access the elements retrieved from items
items Specify a collection (usually write an EL expression)
varStatus Variables that access the repeating state (such as the number of loops)
begin Loop start position
end Loop end position
step Increase amount (basically 1)

The above for Each is an extended for statement


for(String item:list){

The for Each below is an ordinary for statement


for(int i=1;i<=7;i=i+2){

It is easy to remember because the behavior is similar to.

About other tags

There are other core libraries such as <c: param> and <c: set>, but they are too long to explain, so I will omit them. In addition, there are abundant libraries such as format and xml.


--Graduation from <% request.getAttribute ("hogehoge ");%> with EL expression --Graduation from <% if (~)%>, <% for (~)%> in JSTL If you want to make it practical, you will definitely need javascript, but by making full use of EL expressions and JSTL, you do not need to write java logic, and you can simplify the jsp file.
