ABSTRACT: Developing JSP Custom Tags
Java Server Pages (JSP) offers the web developer simple yet powerful methods to develop web pages with dynamic content. However, many JSP applications use a large amount of Java scriptlet code in the page. JSPcustom tags allows the developer to encapsulate the complex scriptlet code in a tag library. This results in a clean separation between presentation and logic. In this session, we will – Examine the usage models for JSP custom tags. – Compare JSP custom tags and JavaBeans. – Follow step-by-step techniques for creating JSP custom tags. – Deploy JSP custom tags on J2EE-compliant application servers.
