For a method returning boolean, I know we could use
<s:if test="%{#session.registration.SomeBooleanMethod('dummy')}">
      this is method juhani      
</s:if>
<s:else>
      this is not method juhani
</s:else>

But what happens if method returns String. And I want to compare it with some other String.
<s:if test="%{#session.registration.SomeStringMethod('dummy')}".equals("juhani") >
      this is method juhani      
</s:if>
<s:else>
      this is not method juhani
</s:else>

Why at this moment it does not work?

How could I include its taglib?
In 2.0, I could use
<%@ taglib prefix="s" uri="/struts-tags" %>
What about struts 1?
