Create a Page Containing a Two-Column Table with Struts

Recently, I was trying to create a two-column table with multiple rows. I needed to iterate over a collection object and display its data in a table with two columns, something like the one shown below:

Value - 1 Value - 2  
Value - 3 Value - 4  
Value - 5 Value - 6  
...

After some web research regarding the use of the rowIndex property and the use of logical tags, I was able to implement the following code, which is at least free from scriptlet tags (although expressions do appear in some places for required logical evaluations):

<! Start iterating the collection object "studentMarkList". 
   The "studentMarks" object is popped out on every iteration >
<logic:iterate id="studentMarks" name="studentMarkList" indexId="rowIndex"> 

    <! Check if rowIndex is zero, i.e. its the first element>
    <bean:define id="mod" value=
       "<%= String.valueOf(rowIndex.intValue())%>" />
    <logic:equal name="mod" value="0" >
        <! if (rowIndex == 0), add the <table> tag >
       <table>
    </logic:equal>
 
    <! Check if the current element is a multiple of 2 (add a new row) >
    <bean:define id="mod" value=
       "<%= String.valueOf((rowIndex.intValue())%2)%>" />
    <logic:equal name="mod" value="0" >
        <! if (rowIndex % 2 == 0), add the <tr> tag > 
        <tr>
    </logic:equal>
 
     <! Write the student information in the column 
        (this would execute twice before inserting a new row)>
    <td> 
        <bean:write name="studentMarks" 
           property="studentName"/> - 
           <bean:write name="studentMarks" 
           property="studentPercentage"/>
    </td>
 
    <! Check if the current element is a multiple of two
           (this means row terminates) >
    <bean:define id="mod" value="<%= 
        String.valueOf((rowIndex.intValue())%2)%>" />
    <logic:notEqual name="mod" value="0" >
        <! if (rowIndex % 2 != 0), add the </tr> tag >
        </tr>
    </logic:notEqual>
</logic:iterate>
