I am new to custom tags and face a conceptual problem. I have nestedtags in my JSP as follows: <user:useragevalidation id="user"> <user:NotValidAge>You are not of valid age.</user:NotValidAge> <user:validage>Yuo are of valid age.</user:validage> </user:useragevalidation>
Now when i define the bodycontent of outer tag(useragevalidation) as tagdependent,I see that the inner tags are not parsed at all (dostarttag/doafterbody of inner tags are not called). However when i change the bodycontent property to JSP,the inner tags are processed for dostarttag/doafterbody etc.,without any other change in code anywhere.
What causes this difference?Why does the tagdependent property not work in this case?
