JSTL Functions – length()

The fn:length() function returns the string length or the number of items in a collection.


The fn:length() function has following syntax:

int length(java.lang.Object)

JSTL Example :

<%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" prefix="c" %>
<%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/functions" prefix="fn" %>

<c:set var="string1" value="This is first String."/>
<c:set var="string2" value="This is second String." />

<p>Length of String (1) : ${fn:length(string1)}</p>
<p>Length of String (2) : ${fn:length(string2)}</p>


This would produce following result:

Length of String (1) : 21
Length of String (2) : 22
