Hi friends,

I was going across the tags in various strut's library but can't understand the intention of writeNesting and write tags in nested tag library though I presume that they fulfill the same purpose. So why do these two tags coexist in same library ?

To be honest, I've never used the nested tag library. I tried using it a couple of times, but it just got too confusing. It sounds good in theory to have Struts keep track of nested levels of naming, but I've found it's just easier for me to use regular struts tags and keep track of the nesting myself.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
