What is the Default value for body-content element of tag library descriptor? Is it JSP/scriptless? Am confused?

What is the default value for body-content for Simple and Custom Tag Handlers?

hi jayashree,

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.

hope this helps...

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).
