Assume that the tag has been properly configured to allow body content.

Which, if inserted at line 12, would cause the JSP code

<mytags:mytag>BodyContent</mytags:mytag> to ouput BodyContent?

A. return SKIP_BODY;

B. return EVAL_BODY_INCLUDE;

C. return EVAL_BODY_BUFFERED;

D. return BODY_CONTENT;


Answer: B

Why not B and C?

Thanks in advance.

The question is : Which would cause the JSP code <mytags:mytag>BodyContent</mytags:mytag> to ouput BodyContent?
Returning EVAL_BODY_BUFFERED will not cause it to output the content of the body, it will store it in a buffer, and you will be responsible for outputting its content.

I find this question a bit disturbing, because we could say that the body content is ouput in a buffer, but I think they mean "output in the web browser"...

Thanks, it's cleared now.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
