Ive been researching how to implement paging in my JSP. I can allow a user to select teh number of records they want to display and then I need to implement this functionality. I will probably need to write a custom tag to do this but Im not overly sure. Could someone help me out?
There are a number of ways to do paged table displays. Custom tags work, Struts iterators work, I've done a number of things in straight Java over the years (some of them pretty ugly ), and most recently, there's an extended data table display in the apache MyFaces project that does multipage display.

So if I were to write a custom tag, how would I go about dividing my list? And displaying the particular pieces of it that I need? As in if a user hits on page 2, should I be going to my action class or should the custom tag handle it?
