You may be surprised to find out that JDeveloper 10g actually contains the widely popular JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Library (JSTL). This means that it is possible to use JSTL directly out of the box within JDeveloper without requiring you to download JSTL separately and install in your environment. JDeveloper 10g's Visual environment also makes working with JSTL a snap.
The following How To shows how to work with the JSTL SQL tags in JDeveloper 10g's visual development environment.
To get started, first make sure to download JDeveloper 10g Preview from OTN. You'll also need access to a database. An Oracle database will be used in this example, but you could use any SQL92 compliant database with JDeveloper.
As you can see, database development with JSP and JSTL SQL are greatly simplified in JDeveloper 10g's visual development environment. For further info on JSTL see:
