Line break in Java

61 New Member
I am currently learning JSP and was wondering how you would implement a line break?

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <%              java.util.Date d1;
  2.            java.util.Date d2;
  4.            d1= new java.util.Date();
  5.            d2 = new java.util.Date();
  7.            out.println(d1);
  8.            out.println("\n");
  9.            out.println(d2);
I thought the line would do the trick but it didn't. The out put is:

This is the heading

This is the body

Basically I wanted to have the two dates in two lines.

Anyone any idea? Thanks.

You are printing HTML code right? A "<br>" tag prints a new line in HTML, so simply print that tag.

kind regards,

Yes its HTML but I dont think you can insert any HTML or non-Java stuff between <% %>

I tried it didn't work. But outside that yes, <br> works like it normally would.

Oh I think I get what you mean,

Some thing like this:

date 1 is : <%= d1%> <br>
date 2 is : <%= d2%>

and putting the remainder in a scriplet <% %>.

You don't really want to use those scriplets in JSPs these days.
Better keep all the Java code in 'pure' servlets or in separate helper Java functions.
You can use EL to access objects in various scopes too.

Simply do a out.println("<b r>") just as the OP was doing with his dates?

I think the problem here is that JSP pages. They require HTML style line breaks (like any HTML documents). So, try using "<br />" instead of "\n".
