Answers to questions on EL and JSTL

  1. D. As 1 is not equal to 2, 5 gets printed.
  2. B. div operator is used for dividing in EL.
  3. A. % operator gives the remainder after performing division.
  4. D. This is a valid syntax for setProperty. All properties of the bean are set from the corresponding parameter names in the request object.
  5. B. The code prints false. ne is a valid operator. Since both left hand side and right hand side are equal to 25, false gets printed.
  6. A. EL considers <cat> to be greater than <cap>, as the letter t comes after the letter p.
  7. C. The following numbers get printed – 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10.
  8. D. if evaluates to false, hence the c.out statement does not get executed.
  9. B. The forEach tag gets executed once, and prints zero.
  10. B. Only one number gets printed – the number 1.
  11. B, C. In this case the forEach tag iterates through two elements of the array named j.
  12. B, C. varStatus is set to a class of type LoopTagStatus. This class has a property named count which is being printed. count is the loop index, beginning with 1. So for two iterations 1 and 2 get printed. In this case the forEach tag iterates through two elements of the array named j.
  13. A. status.first is true for the first iteration. The index is set to 0 in the first iteration.
  14. A. The path of core tag library in JSTL 1.1 is http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core .
