JSTL - fn:replace() Function

The fn:replace() function replaces all occurrences of a string with another string.


The fn:replace () function has the following syntax −

boolean replace(java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String)


Following is the example to explain the functionality of the fn:replace() function −

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

      <title>Using JSTL Functions</title>

      <c:set var = "string1" value = "This is first String."/>
      <c:set var = "string2" value = "${fn:replace(string1, 'first', 'second')}" />
      <p>Final String : ${string2}</p>

You will receive the following result −
