jspversion ? I think that you are referring to an old DTD for TLD 1.1. Look at a XML Schema file describing a Tag Library Descriptor in a JSP 2.0 format. You will find one in the specification. You will that the following are mandatory in <taglib> :
i've got a .tld without a <short-name> and it works just fine.
Yep, I've got one too. But the exam does not ask you how your container will react when you try this and that. It's all about what the specification tells. And it says that the short-name is mandatory. Your container just doesn't care By the way, you'll also see that the container is supposed to generate a TLD for tag files under WEB-INF/tags. When it does, it is supposed to generate both tlib-version and short-name.
i was going through the jsp-2_0-fr-spec.pdf from sun's website. Page#400 of this spec has a graphic representation of the tld element. The DTD symbols and their meaning as i know is something like this:
* an asterisk (*) indicates the element may be present 0 or more times;
* a plus (+) one or more times;
* a question mark (?) 0 or 1 times;
* and in the absence of a symbol the element is required once and only once.
The graphical rep of the tld element in the jsp spec suggests that:
description, display-name, icon, listener , tag, tag-file, function may be present 0 or more times.
My question is does the jsp2.0 spec allows to have more than one description element. am i reading the graph correctly ?
Can anyone please help me out. i am a bit puzzled by this graphical representation and the description provided below in the spec doesn't hit my brain.
