Tag notEmpty

Evaluate the nested body content of this tag if the requested variable is neither null, nor an empty string, nor an empty java.util.Collection (tested by the .isEmpty() method on the java.util.Collection interface).

This tag evaluates its nested body content only if the specified value is present (i.e. not null) and is not an empty string (i.e. a java.lang.String with a length of zero).

JSTL: The equivalent JSTL tag is <c:if> using the ! empty operator. For example,
<c:if test="${ ! empty sessionScope.myBean.myProperty}"> do something </c:if>
