Hi Ranchers, What is the difference between Simple and Classic Tags ?? I would also like to know about any other types of tags, if they exits ?? Pls. guide me on this... [ February 01, 2004: Message edited by: Manish Sachdev ]
The earlier versions of JSP (i.e. 1.1 and 1.2) had a mechanism for building tags where you implemented the Tag interface. In JSP 2.0 these are called "Classic Tags". "Simple Tags" are new to JSP 2.0 and provide you a simpler interface called SimpleTag. In addition to this, JSP 2.0 also allows you to build custom tags with "tag files" - small JSP fragments that can be used like a custom tag. Here is a link to some stuff I wrote on tag files. Hope that helps.
