according to specs and whizlabs the default value for Simple tags is implementation dependent. that means there is no default value defined for simple tags in JSP 2.0 version. a reasonable value would be scriptless, but it's not really defined.

That's right. The element <body-content>...</body-content> is mandatory in the <tag> element of the taglib, if it's not there the DD will not parse (so there's no need for a dfault value, it would never be used).
