Hello ,

I want to know which are the most important tags in the struts customs tags libraries.Give a break up on the basis of their libraries.

HTML tags,
Logic tags,
Bean tags,
Nested tags.

Thanks everybody.

Do you actually *need* to learn Struts 1?

The only real caveat about the Struts 1 tags are that you should use JSTL tags whenever their functionality overlaps with Struts tags. Other than that you'd use tags from each taglib pretty frequently. Maybe if you explained what your goal was it'd be easier to answer.

Thanks Mr Newton,
I am learning struts 1.1. There in one book 'jakarta struts' oreilly by Chuck Cavaness , I found the topic jsp custom tag libraries. There are predefined tag libraries given in struts. They are so many in number. Are they important and if they are which are the ones that one should know and use most often?

Could you tell me the name of one book that has good description about the jsp custom tags in struts. Or any material downloadable over the internet.

I have to ask *why* you're learning Struts 1.1? Unless you have a *really* good reason to do so, don't. It's very, very old.

Here is the Struts 1.1 site:

http://struts.apache.org/1.1/index.html

The user guide:

On the left are links to the taglib docs. My prior advice remains: any time JSTL tags overlap in functionality, use the JSTL tags.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
