Description Peter Illes 2002-09-26 07:55:14 UTC
The forEach tag is wrong when iterating in 'fixed number of times' mode. When
'begin' parameter equals the 'end' parameter, it doesn't evaluate at all. When
'end' is 'begin' + 1, it iterates twice as should iterate towards 'end' inclusive.
This means it's not possible to iterate once.

I can't replicate the problem.  Consider the following examples:

<c:forEach begin="0" end="0">
 Loop! <br />

<c:forEach begin="0" end="1">
 Loop! <br />

For me, the first loop executes once, and the second executes twice.

If you're still having a problem, please be more specific; post an entire page 
of input and output, and specify the container that you're running in.
