Description

The JSP Standard Tag Library JSTL for Web Designers training course covers the Java Standard Tag Library in-depth.

Java Standard Tag Library (JSTL) consists of several JSP custom tag libraries that encapsulate, as simple tags, core functionality common to many JSP applications. The standardization lets you learn a single tag and use it on multiple JSP containers.

JSTL provides support for core iteration and control-flow features, text inclusion, internationalization-capable formatting tags, and XML-manipulation tags. It also supports an expression language to simplify page development.

The JSP Standard Tag Library JSTL for Web Designers training course is designed for Web designers who have no or little Java experience. It first gives students an overview of JSP and XML from a web designer's perspective and then moves on to cover all the JSTL tags. Numerous examples are used to illustrate the usage of the tags. This course is highly hands-on. %60 of the time will be spent on labs.

  • Install JSTL and make it available to JSP pages
