Hello, I would like to do a simple basic tag that can encapsulate the behavior of a html combobox. I though about something like a simple Java class that would have 2 fields: a list and a selecteditem. When we give a reference to an instance of such a class in the jsp, the taglib would render this html element. <myTagLib:combobox name="myBean" property="myCombobox"/>
my first question is: - Is there some basic class that my custom tag can extend to handle usual attributes like 'name', 'property', 'id', ... without having to re-develop theses funcionalities - Is there some generic taglib open source that encapsulate all html elements in a framework independently way?
