Package javax.servlet.jsp.tagext

Classes and interfaces for the definition of JavaServer Pages Tag Libraries.

          Description

Interface Summary
BodyTag The BodyTag interface extends IterationTag by defining additional methods that let a tag handler manipulate the content of evaluating its body.
DynamicAttributes For a tag to declare that it accepts dynamic attributes, it must implement this interface.
IterationTag The IterationTag interface extends Tag by defining one additional method that controls the reevaluation of its body.
JspIdConsumer  
JspTag Serves as a base class for Tag and SimpleTag.
SimpleTag Interface for defining Simple Tag Handlers.
Tag The interface of a classic tag handler that does not want to manipulate its body.
TryCatchFinally The auxiliary interface of a Tag, IterationTag or BodyTag tag handler that wants additional hooks for managing resources.
 

Class Summary
BodyContent An encapsulation of the evaluation of the body of an action so it is available to a tag handler.
BodyTagSupport A base class for defining tag handlers implementing BodyTag.
FunctionInfo Information for a function in a Tag Library.
JspFragment Encapsulates a portion of JSP code in an object that can be invoked as many times as needed.
PageData Translation-time information on a JSP page.
SimpleTagSupport A base class for defining tag handlers implementing SimpleTag.
TagAdapter Wraps any SimpleTag and exposes it using a Tag interface.
TagAttributeInfo Information on the attributes of a Tag, available at translation time.
TagData The (translation-time only) attribute/value information for a tag instance.
TagExtraInfo Optional class provided by the tag library author to describe additional translation-time information not described in the TLD.
TagFileInfo Tag information for a tag file in a Tag Library; This class is instantiated from the Tag Library Descriptor file (TLD) and is available only at translation time.
TagInfo Tag information for a tag in a Tag Library; This class is instantiated from the Tag Library Descriptor file (TLD) and is available only at translation time.
TagLibraryInfo Translation-time information associated with a taglib directive, and its underlying TLD file.
TagLibraryValidator Translation-time validator class for a JSP page.
TagSupport A base class for defining new tag handlers implementing Tag.
TagVariableInfo Variable information for a tag in a Tag Library; This class is instantiated from the Tag Library Descriptor file (TLD) and is available only at translation time.
ValidationMessage A validation message from either TagLibraryValidator or TagExtraInfo.
VariableInfo Information on the scripting variables that are created/modified by a tag (at run-time).
 

Package javax.servlet.jsp.tagext Description

Classes and interfaces for the definition of JavaServer Pages Tag Libraries.

The JavaServer Pages(tm) (JSP) 2.0 specification provides a portable mechanism for the description of tag libraries.

A JSP tag library contains

The JSP 2.0 specification and the reference implementation both contain simple and moderately complex examples of actions defined using this mechanism. These are available at JSP's web site, at http://java.sun.com/products/jsp. Some readers may want to consult those to get a quick feel for how the mechanisms work together.


(Built by coreservlets)

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.
