How to pass variables from scriptlet to EL context

Sometimes you may need to pass a variable from scriptlet context to EL context in your JSPs, and vice versa. The following snippets could help you.

From scriptlet to EL :

<c:set var="myELVar"><%=myScriptletVar%></c:set>

From EL to scriptlet :

<% String myScriptletVar = String.valueOf(pageContext.getAttribute("myELVar")); %>

In general, try to avoid using scriptlets ! 🙂
