Using tags in scriptlets

Hi folks,
allthough I know that the intention of TagLibs is different, I want to
use the functionality of a tag in a scriptlet. Is there a way to do that?
And when, what does the syntax look like?
To be more concrete:
I use the Jakarta-DB-Taglib. As usuallay I make a connection. And then I
want to check the existence of a specific userID before creating it.
so what I want to do is:
- make a query
- check the rowCount
And so I assumed there is a way to do something like
<% if(!<db:rowCount>.equals("0")) { %>
There's allready a user with that ID!
<% } %>
Can anyone help? :roll:
Thanks in advance!

Kommt Zeit, kommt Bart!

Everything's allright! I found it myself!
If anyone is interested, here is how you can manage it.
- make a connection with the concerning tag
- start a statement tag
- after query and the result-tags, you can then access the rowcount
in a scriptlet with
(Integer)pageContext.getAttribute ("org.apache.taglibs.dbtags.resultset.rowcount");
For some this will be obvious, for me it was some kind of tricky to find!
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
