Hi,

I have a customTag which will display the string.what i want is to check that string with a word.how can i do that please help me...

For Example:

I have a custom Tag:
<s:itemTitle feedId='<%=string%>'/> ----> which will diaplay a line of statement on a JSP Page. (i.e for example it will display "welcome to world of Magic")

To avoid the pain of creating tag handlers,
use JSP2.0's Tag files (*.tag)
They are easy to use. JSP only, no more java code.

Quite right. But I think the OP has to do with the existing code, that is written by someone else. He/She might not start creating tag with this proposed style.

Find the appropriate TLD. check the api's of your custom tag


Servlet Spec 2.4/ Jsp Spec 2.0/ JSTL Spec 1.1 - JSTL Tag Documentation
