Should be:

int length(java.lang.String)


<function-signature> length(java.lang.String)

Reason: "int" is a primitive type, not a class with a fully qualified name

JSP 2.0 Spec, 3-24:
"Type is a basic type or a fully qualified Java class name (including package name), as per the ’Type’ production in the Java Language Specification, Second Edition, Chapter 18."
