hi everybody,
i'm going thru example struts application from jakarta
site.the servlet code generated for index.jsp page
creates different tags and calls doStartTag() on them.
this method returns some constant values to jsp implementation class. implementation of doStartTag()
in all tag classes returns int values '0' or '1' or '2'
whatever. but in the jsp implementation class the constant
returned from doStartTag() method is compared with
constants like 'Tag.SKIP_BODY' or 'BodyTag.EVAL_BODY_BUFFERED'. now how shud i come to know
what is the integer value of 'Tag.SKIP_BODY' or 'BodyTag.EVAL_BODY_BUFFERED'?
is there any way other than system.out statements?
pl. provide some guidelines.
thanx & regards
