No scripting inside tag body?

"No scripting inside tag body", because the <body-content> in tld is default scriptless. Does this only apply to simple tags and tag files? or all tags? Because I certainly have used scripting inside tags before, e.g. those struts tags and JSTL tags.

Someone please clarify. Thanks.

Check out the tld files available in the jar files used for struts and jstl.
If you found

that means your tag library uses JSP1.1. In JSP 1.1 the deafuls body-content type is "JSP".

In case your tags are JSP 2.0 compliant, the tld must specify the body-content as "JSP" in case it allows scriptlets.

Thanks, Tridib

scriptless is the default for <bod-content> of Simple tags and tag files whereas for classic tags <body-content> is mandatory and hence there is no default value for it.

This is for JSP 2.0
I agree. Here's the link:
