Hi,

How does one use the jsp:body and jsp:invoke in the JSP and/or tag file?
What is the meaning of the two?

How do u specify the value of the expression below
<%@ variable name-given="date" variable-class="java.util.Date"%>

Can one use the variable then as ${date} ?


Regards,<br />Deepti.

<jsp:doBody /> and <jsp:invoke /> can only be invoked from tag files, never ordinary JSPs. Their purpose is to evaluate the action's body or a fragment attribute respectively.

<jsp:body> on the other hand is used to provide a <jsp:element> with body content, which is a completely different issue. <jsp:body> may be used in either JSPs or tag files.
