This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Is there a way to programmatically add a tag descriptions for a jsp rather than declaring them in a .tld? I have many tags that have the same attributes and it a pain to have to copy that same big list of attributes over and over again in the tld file. Is there a hook for doing this? I know you can do dynamic attributes, but it would nice if I didn't even have to add the tag at all to a tld file.
Tag files are a JSP 2.0 feature where you can write a custom action (tag) as a JSP file rather than as Java code. They are well suited for actions that emit a lot of markup and don't have to do a lot of processing (scriptlets are forbidden in tag files, so that part rather takes care of itself).
