  • generate generic object with JSP or JSTL ?

    I'd like to have a page that displays a list of objects- the object type to be determined at runtime.

    I'm wondering if there is a way in JSTL or JSP to get each of the object's members generically, and iterate through the list displaying the values.

    For example, if I have a Person object with an ID, Name, Address, Phone. And I have a Purchase object with an ID, Name, Price, Supplier

    I want the page to load a list of Persons, or a list of Purchases (or any other type of object). But I would like to only have to create one HTML(jsp) page, iterate through the objects, and for each object, write each column value to the line.

    Hoping someone might know a way to do this.
