i have a question

was looking through some jwcd questionaire's and found a very weird question.. which i am unable to fathom..
Which of the following staments are correct about the following jsp lines:
Given the following jsp line select the correct statements:
<% public void jspInit() { code...} %>
the answer says
1) It is a valid line that can be used to initialize the servlet that implements the jsp file.
Now I am curious.. I assume since it is a scriptlet it goes into the service method right.. and how can jspInit show up inside a service method..
could someone clarify how this function.... could be right

Hi Nic
thanks for the response

there was another questionairre i was going through that said this was invalid.. I presume is it correct
I was of the assumption that one could reference a jar file as you tag-lib location.. and it would be valid.. Do you have any inputs on this..
thanks ..

I think it is a valid taglib definition, if and only if, the xxx.tld is located at the /META-INF inside the JAR file.
If the .tld file does not locate in that directory, the taglib cannot be found.
I agree. Here's the link:
