How do use c:forEach JSTL tag?

The c:forEach tag in the core JSTL tag library is a useful tag when we want to iterate over a collection of data such as array. It is commonly use to render a tabular data in our web pages in form of HTML table.

In the example below we display a weather data that we stored as two dimensional array of string. After declaring and initializing the data with some value we put it into the request scope. Later on the c:forEach tag can use the data, iterates it row by row to form an HTML table. Our weather data consist of the date, condition and the high and low temperature.

            {"Nov 8", "Sunny", "32", "26"},
            {"Nov 9", "Partly Cloudy", "32", "26"},
            {"Nov 10", "Isolated T-Storms", "32", "26"}
    };
    request.setAttribute("weathers", data);

<table>
    <tr>
        <th>DATE</th>
        <th>CONDITION</th>
        <th>TEMP. HIGH</th>
        <th>TEMP. LOW</th>
    </tr>
    <c:forEach var="weather" items="${weathers}">
        <tr>
            <td>${weather[0]}</td>
            <td>${weather[1]}</td>
            <td align="center">${weather[2]}℃</td>
            <td align="center">${weather[3]}℃</td>
        </tr>
    </c:forEach>
</table>
