If I use <%@ attribute name="class" required="false" %> in a JSP Tag file, it results in a blank page and the following error in my Tomcat console:



Any idea why? Change the attribute to "cssClass" works, but "class" is much more intuitive for web developers using my tag.

As a workaround, I can use dynamic-attributes. I'm just curious if this issue is documented anywhere or I'm just doing something wrong.

Thanks,

Matt

I suspect that Tomcat could be dealing with the problem a bit better, but using an attribute or property name of class is going to get you in all sorts of trouble with conflicts with the getClass() method of Object.

In similar situations, I've used styleClass, but cssClass should work as well.
