Description Hans Bergsten 2002-03-13 18:35:21 UTC
The EL doesn't evaluate the expression ${'true' and false} correctly; the result
is true instead of false.

According to A.3.7.1, both terms should be coerced to Boolean, and then
compared. A.7.4 says that a String is coerced using Boolean.valueOf(),
which should give true for the String 'true'. Hence, the end-result should
be true.
