<%
                if(reportResult!=null)
                {
                 for(int i=0;i<reportResult.length;i++)
                 {String itArr[] =reportResult[i].split(",");
                 
                  %>  
                        <tr align="center">      
                        <TD><%if(null != itArr[0])out.write(itArr[0]); %></TD>
                        <TD><%if(null != itArr[1])out.write(itArr[1]); %></TD>

Hi huzefaq,

Here's the code that you need:

<%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" %>
<%@ taglib prefix="fn" uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/functions" %>

<%
String[] reportResult = {
    "Element 1,Element 2,Element 3,Element 4,Element 5",
    "Element 6,Element 7,Element 8,Element 9,Element 10"
};

request.setAttribute( "reportResult", reportResult );
%>

<html>

  <table border="1">
      <c:forEach var="elements" items="${reportResult}">

          <tr>

              <c:set var="delimiter" value=","/>
              <c:set var="itArr" value="${fn:split(elements,delimiter)}"/>
             
              <c:forEach var="element" items="${itArr}">
                  <td>${element}</td>
              </c:forEach>

          </tr>
      </c:forEach>
  </table>

</html>


Basically the codes uses two forEach constructs. First in iterating the reportResult array, the second is on the splitted array values. Also, it uses the fn:split function to parse the string.

You need the JSTL jar for this to run. It can be downloaded from here: http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/javax/servlet/jstl/1.1.2/jstl-1.1.2.jar



Cheers!
