JSTL Less Than Equal(<=), Greater Than Equal(>=)

JSTL Less Than Equal(<=), Greater Than Equal(>=) explains about how to use logical conditions(less than, greater equal etc) with JSTL tag

Consider a JSP Page where you need to check a value whether it is less than, greater than etc and process accordingly, in that scenario,  you can follow this example.

On the following table, I am showing 2 different ways (Method 1 & Method 2), you can achieve logical conditions in JSTL

Logical operation JSTL Method 1 JSTL Method 2

greater than gt >
less than or equal le <=
