Tomcat 5 default body-content for a simple tag

Hi,

The JSP Spec states that the body-content tag must be scriptless as JSP is not a valid body-content for simple tags,
Tomcat behaves otherwise , if we dont provide the body-content for a tag, tomcat defaults to JSP which is not correct according to the Spec.
Please share your thoughts.

Yups, u are correct. i tested this in Tomcat5.0.28. Looks like another inconsistency of Tomcat.

But this creates another question. Is the <body-content> a required *tag* in the TLD ? HFS pg. 467 mentions this as *REQUIRED*. However, tomcat does take JSP as the default value, if it is not present.

Tried looking in the specs, but could not find anywhere about this.
