HTL Global Objects

Without having to specify anything, HTL provides access to all objects that were commonly available in JSP after including
global.jsp
. These objects are in addition to any that may be introduced through the Use-API.

Enumerable Objects

These objects provide convenient access to commonly used information. Their content can be accessed with the dot notation, and they can be iterated-through using
data-sly-list
or
data-sly-repeat
.
