evaluate

public abstract Object evaluate(VariableResolver vResolver)
                         throws ELException

Parameters:
vResolver - A VariableResolver instance that can be used at runtime to resolve the name of implicit objects into Objects.
Returns:
The result of the expression evaluation.
Throws:
ELException - Thrown if the expression evaluation failed.

As of July 2010, there were no online versions of the servlet 3.0, JSP 2.2, and EL 2.2 Javadocs, except as part of the huge Java EE 6 API. So, I built them myself from the Tomcat 7 source code.
