A simple tag with attribute;

there is a movie class used in tag handler in tag handler class...

i dont know whether it should be used as a bean or in a scriptlet . its unclear whats happeng in k&b pg 521
mytag2.jsp


awesome_tag.tld


Movie.java


SimpleTag3.java




We are using tags to eliminate scriptlets. Now in this,without using a scriptlet how do i declare a List which i can then use as an attribute .??? may be i am forgetting something but at the moment i cant recall what to do.

Thanks A LOT !

Hi Aashima,

i dont know whether it should be used as a bean or in a scriptlet


The idea is to create a Servlet (that instantiates the List of movies and than adds it as an attribute to the request) and to forward from that Servlet (by using a RequestDispatcher) to the jsp.

You should define the Servlet (<servlet>) in your web.xml, and use the <url-pattern> of your <servlet-mapping> to access it.

Regards,
Frits

Not looking good. I think this might be the end. Wait! Is that a tiny ad?
