Hi,

I'd be grateful if someone could clear up this confusion for me:
Possible values for the tag are:
empty, scriptless, tag-dependent, and JSP.

SimpleTag's setJspBody() method takes a JspFragment.
JspFragment can't contain any scripting elements.

Presumably that means that you can never declare the of a simple tag to be "JSP", and therefore only classic tags can contain scripting elements in the body?

Or am I missing something?

thanks,

Gordy

Simple tags can be empty or scriptless. Scripting elements (in other words, scriptlets) cannot be used in the body of simple tags.

In other words, either write your tags using JSP 1.x features: classic tags and scriptlets, or write them using JSP 2.0 mechanisms: simple tags, tag files and JSTL/EL.

Don't mix and match.
