My question:
How come in doAfterBody(), second line, getBodyContent() returns null?

Thanks!

Hi Jenny!
You should return EVAL_BODY_BUFFERED instead of EVAL_BODY_INCLUDE.
Hope it helps.

Hi Osama! It's so cool. It worked after I did what you said.

But... I'm confused... when doStartTag() returns EVAL_BODY_INCLUDE, doesn't the control go to evaluate body? why do I have to have EVAL_BODY_BUFFERED? I don't have setBodyContent() or doInitBody() defined.

Thanks!
Jenny

Hi Jenny!
BodyContent is available only when the body is buffered. Thus, when we return EVAL_BODY_INCLUDE from doStartTag() the body is not buffered and hence BodyContent is not available.

Oh thanks, Osama! I didn't know that.

BTW, can I implement the body iteration by using TagSupport?

The TagSupport class implements the IterationTag interface. So, you certainly can.

Osama,

I tried to extend TagSupport, but couldn't compile. getBodyContent() is not recognized. How do I get body content then?

Thanks!
Jenny

Try to find out...if getBodyContent() method belongs to BodyTagSupport class.

That can be the only reason.
