The following was working then I had to add another condition and now it is not working if I add what is blocked out

- what i wanted to add was
refURL.endsWith("esccServlet") ||  (refURI.beginsWith("pbc2"))

from
refURL.endsWith("esccServlet") )
What is not right??

<%
boolean  display = false ;
String refURL = request.getHeader("referer");
//String refURI = request.getRequestURI("uri");
if ( (new Integer(passedCalculatedElecSerDay)).intValue()>0 )
{
display = true;
}
if ( (new Integer(passedCalculatedElecSerYear)).intValue()>0 )
{
display = true;
}
if  ( display == true && refURL != null && 
 //refURL.endsWith("esccServlet") ||  (refURI.beginsWith("pbc2"))
  //(refURI.beginsWith("pbc2"))
    refURL.endsWith("esccServlet"))
  //(refURI.endsWith("pbc2"))

 You have statements without a OR and/or AND checking. You cannot do it. And you have more parenthesis than actual needed. (refURI.beginsWith("pbc2")) can be written as refURI.beginsWith("pbc2").

  I am not sure what exactly you are tryign to look for but the above coudl be written as:

if  (  (display == true && refURL != null &&
      refURL.endsWith("esccServlet")) ||  
     (refURI.beginsWith("pbc2") && 
     refURI.beginsWith("pbc2") && 
     refURL.endsWith("esccServlet") && 
     refURI.endsWith("pbc2"))
     )

  Change the OR/AND checking and parenthesis accordingly to obtain whatever result.

  Hope it helps.

this is the error I get with the below:
expected. if ( display == true && refURL != null && (refURL.endsWith("esccServlet") || (refURI.startsWith("pbc2"))) ^ /u/ws03/as01/jit/default_host/pbcdev/_10calculator_2D_e_jsp_0.java:649: 'else' without 'if'. } else { ^ 2 errors

<%
boolean  display = false ;
String refURL = request.getHeader("referer");
String refURI = request.getRequestURI();
if ( (new Integer(passedCalculatedElecSerDay)).intValue()>0 )
{
display = true;
}
if ( (new Integer(passedCalculatedElecSerYear)).intValue()>0 )
{
display = true;
}

  if  ( display == true && refURL != null &&  (refURL.endsWith("esccServlet") ||  (refURI.startsWith("pbc2")))

 Make sure you have a matching closing bracket somewhere.

  And put everythign inside parenthesis, just in case:

 if  ( (display == true) && (refURL != null) &&  (refURL.endsWith("esccServlet") ||  (refURI.startsWith("pbc2")))

After more careful consideration this:

 if  ( display == true && refURL != null &&  (refURL.endsWith("esccServlet") ||  (refURI.startsWith("pbc2")))


  should be:

  if  ( display == true && refURL != null &&  (refURL.endsWith("esccServlet") ||  refURI.startsWith("pbc2")))

  Hope it helps.
