String str = new String("Test");

' Will give you the length of the string

There is no Left function in JSP. Rather you can use
substring(intBeginIndex, intEndIndex)

I hope it will give you some idea.

Do like this:

To apply the left function you can use substring() funtion of String class.

The substring(int, int) method is used for extracting a contiguous portion of a string. The first integer represents the starting index, the second integer is the ending index. You can also use substring(int) function which will take the starting index of your string and the ending index will be considered as length of the string.

Question: Why you have used subinteger() function??

The santax example of substring function is as follows -

String str = new String("Testing Game");
str.substring(0,6) will return
You can also use str.substring(6) Which will return "Game" to you.

Good luck.
