How to display element in JSP only if model element not null

To do that you can use the or _ tags to make conditional rendering in Java Server Pages (JSP) using the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL) like in the following code snippet:

<div>
	<c:if test="${not empty podcast.twitterPage}">
		<a href="${podcast.twitterPage}" target="_blank" class="icon-twitter-producer producer-social"></a>
	</c:if>
	<c:if test="${not empty podcast.fbPage}">
		<a href="${podcast.fbPage}" target="_blank" class="icon-facebook-producer producer-social"></a>
	</c:if>
	<c:if test="${not empty podcast.gplusPage}">
		<a href="${podcast.gplusPage}" target="_blank" class="icon-google-plus-producer producer-social"></a>
	</c:if>
</div>
