Hi,
I've been stuck for a few days now... I'm trying to build a custum tag with parameters but my setter always receive a string when I pass a value as ${model.testStr}.

It's one of my first tag so I as an exemple I redefined the cut tag in my library... Same soruce code, same config and yet the explression is passed as a srting...
JSP:

Results in :

ps : "SWEET!" is my ${model.testStr}

Here's my lcc.tdl:


Any help will be greatly appreciated,

Thanks,

Matt

As per forum instructions, please include what versions of JSP, JSTL and Servlets that you are using.

Problems like this are a sign of mixing incompatible versions, or of web app misconfiguration.

Here's what i'm using :
tomcat 6 with liferay 5.2 portlet container
portlet 2.0

For my jsp version I think it's 1.2 since in my web.xml I have the http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-app_2_3.dtd specified.

For my jstl version 2.0, as it was showing in my last post...

The problem is probably between the jsp 1.2 and jstl 2.0... I'll experiment a bit and let guys kknow...

You'll need to get your versions straight. For example, there is no JSTL 2.0.

Check the JSP FAQs for info on setting up the proper versions and declaring your web.xml properly.

Hi,

Obviously my config is wrong... Would you have any good working example that I could follow?

Keep in mind that it'is my first custom tag...

Have you consulted the JSP FAQ as instructed?
