Hi All:
I am just wondering

Can I use <logic:iterate> with plain <html> tags?

is the following valid?



In general, can you combine struts tags within your HTML tags? pls let me know. I am new to struts.

Many thanks.

Yes, you can. The JSP compiler treats any tags it doesn't recognize as a taglib as "print this stuff as-is into the output stream".

You can use any Struts tags together with HTML tag in the JSP, if you have defined what taglibs you are going to use inside the JSP. Such as:

Remember though that making the page's components regular html tags instead of struts tags loses the automatic prepopulation benefits.

Anyway, as Lasse said in another thread, it is recommended to use standard JSTL as much as possible that the Struts tags, unless you really need, like the Struts Form tag.
