If i used a taglib in my JSP page ,how the javacompiler(After jsp is converted to JAVA.class file)internally handles that?
Thanks in advance,

The tags are turned into simple Java statements which activate the tag handler's methods as appropriate during the translation stage (where the JSP gets turned into a Java servlet).
The compliler then compiles the Java code into a class file like any other Java source file.
You should take a look at the Java source files that are generated from your JSP pages by your container. Very informative.
