Hello all,
I am using tomcat 4.1 and jdk 1.3
While validating custom tag lib, the validate method of TagLibraryValidator should return ValidationMessage
The api describe the constructor like this :

I am not very clear about the jsp:id. Should I pass a string (like "<mytag:foo>") which will indicate the tag causing the problem?
What is the meaning of "If non-null, the value of id must be the value of a jsp:id attribute for the PageData" ?

Regards, Balaji
