I have a Bodytagsupport subclassed class with the following :
public int doAfterBody() throws JspException {

JspWriter out = getPreviousOut();
BodyContent bodyContent = getBodyContent();
String thisbody=bodyContent.getString();

catch(Exception e) {

return SKIP_BODY;
Here param is an attribute of the tag;which is to be appended to the tag body-simple,isnt it?
the JSP content is :
<table border=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=2>
<sample:echotag param="IBM">
<tr><td> ${firstname} </td></tr>

In the resulting html i get IBm printed before ${firstname},why?

The dostarttag is as follows:
public int doStartTag() throws JspException {
try {
JspWriter out = pageContext.getOut();

} catch (Exception e) {

I agree. Here's the link:
