I am trying an example with body-content tag as scriptless. when I give EL in jsp, i am getting this exception. "org.apache.jasper.JasperException: /customtag.jsp(8,29) Expression language not allowed in a template text body."

Is n't EL allowed in tag body when body-content is specified as scriptless?

Here is my tld

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<taglib xmlns=""
xsi:schemaLocation="" version="2.0">
<description>Random advice</description>

and JSP:

<%@ taglib prefix="mine" uri="customTags"%>
<title>Custom Tag</title>
Using an advice custom tag
<jsp:attribute name="user">${userName}</jsp:attribute>

I think that the problem comes from that your "user" attribute does not accept runtime expressions. The jsp:attribute has the following condition :
For standard or custom action attributes that do not accept a request-time expression
value, the Container must use the body of the <jsp:attribute> action as
the value of the attribute. A translation error must result if the body of the
<jsp:attribute> action contains anything but template text.

So you have to set the rtexprvalue of the user attribute to true.
