rtexpvalue in custom tags

if the rtexpvalue in the custom tag is set to true and a runtime value is assigned to the respective variable in the JSP page then will the value be coerced to a string ?
TIA

Not necessarily ... it depends on the setter available in the tag handler implementation. For example, you can pass a date into a tag using <myTag:showDate date="<%= new Date() %>"/>, providing that you have a setDate(Date) method defined in your tag handler.
In other words, you can use sort of Object if you have rtexprvalue set to true. If it is set to false, then there are some implicit conversion rules.
Hope that helps...
