Correct! Now to make things a bit more complicated: let me ask you another question:
What if the tag (where the exeption is thrown) is in an included jsp ->
a) the processing of the included jsp and the including jsp stops
b) the processing of the included jsp stops and the including jsp continues
Yes, the SkipPageException is an exception on the JspException's: it was meant for SimpleTags (thrown from doTag()) to have a simular behaviour possible like the Classis Custom Tag doEndTag() return code SKIP_PAGE.
