WHAT IS EL
EL means the expression language , it is a simple language for accessing data, it makes it possible to easily access application data stored in JavaBeans components. The jsp expression language allows a page author to access a bean using simple syntax such as $(name). Before JSP 2.0, we could use only a scriptlet, JSP expression, or a custom tag to include server state in the jsp page output.
