Professional JSP Tag Libraries is designed to help newcomers, and experienced JSP developers alike learn about and get the most from this exciting technology that has the power to revolutionize the way that you'll write JSP based applications. This book covers all features of the tag API, maintainability, reusability and best practices. Real-world code examples are used to underpin the concepts being discussed and demonstrate the principles in practice.

The Tag API : This book covers all features of the tag API, including:
  • Simple tags and the use of attributes to further customize functionality
  • Tags that can programmatically evaluate their body content
  • Tags that can introduce scripting variables into the page
  • Tags that can be used to evaluate their body content many times to provide iteration
  • Tags that can manipulate and transform their body content
  • Tags that can cooperate on the page

  • Maintainability, reusability and best practices : An underlying theme throughout all of the chapters in this book are those of maintainability and reusability, showing you how to best use custom tags to achieve the most benefit on your JSP projects. In addition to this, however, are chapters that are specifically dedicated to discussing some of the more theoretical facets of tag development, including:
  • When to use custom tags and when to use JavaBeans to encapsulate functionality for use on JSP pages
  • How OO and component based development relate to designing custom tags
  • How the intended audience can affect the design and development of tags and tag libraries
  • Best practices associated with the tag lifecycle
  • How validation can be used to provide more robust tag libraries
  • A look at the deployment options available and some of the common errors that occur at deployment time

  • Real-world examples : Throughout this book, and to underpin all of the discussions and techniques, real-world code examples are used to demonstrate the principles in practice. By the end of the book, you'll be in a position to use custom tags to help write more maintainable, readable JSP pages with less effort, while at the same time building up a library of useful, reusable components.

    Congrats on the publishing!
