JSTL - how to get a value of value?

I have this in my jsp page : ${category.name_ENG} which has "Car" as value

but i have the local language in an another varialbes : ${locale}. So in my jsp i want to display the car value depending on the locale variable.

To get the locale I tried some approaches in below for unfortunately failed.


Please suggest on this.

In this case its better to use JSTL <c:set> to concatenate a string in EL and then use brace notation [] to access properties with a dynamic key.
<c:set var="name" value="name_${locale}" /> ${category[name]}

By the way, if the sole functional requirement is internationalization/localization, then there are way much better ways than fiddling like this: How to internationalize a java web application.
