Hi,

I am practising tag libraries. This is a small web applictation which connects to database and inserts or updates the database. Everything is find but the problem is with the custom tag library file.


this is a custom tag library tld file.

customLib.tld
============

<? xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<!DOCTYPE taglib
PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD JSP Tag Library 1.2//EN"
"http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-jsptaglibrary_1_2.dtd">

<taglib>

<tlib-version>2.0<tlib-version>
<jsp-version>1.2</jsp-version>
<short-name></short-name>
<uri></uri>
<description>Tag Libraries Examples</description>

<tag>
<name>ifValidEmailAddr</name>
<tag-class>org.library.tags.implementation.EmailAddressValid</tag-class>
<body-content>JSP</body-content>
<description>allows to connect to database</description>

<attribute>
<name>value</name>
<required>true</required>
<rtexprvalue>true</rtexprvalue>
</attribute>

<attribute>
<name>var</name>
<required>false</required>
</attribute>

<attribute>
<name>scope</name>
<required>false</required>
</attribute>
</tag>
</taglib>

the compiler is reporting the <taglib> must terminate with the end tag </taglib> but the end tag is there. I'm not understanding what compiler is telling. Please help me...

Thanks & Regards,
sathish.g.

It may not be what's causing this specific problem, but you shouldn't have a blank URI.

Also you haven't closed the <tlib-version> tag correctly (copy/paste into Eclipse highlighted the error immediately)

Like eclipse you have other options tools also (use when you don't have eclipse) Notepad++, any web browser to indicate the error of mixed/missed hierarchy and other etc.

Hi,

Even after closing the compiler is reporting the should be terminated by element.

This is the statcktrace:


SEVERE: Parse Fatal Error at line 16 column 3: The element type "taglib" must be terminated by the matching end-tag "</taglib>".

Hi,

Thanks for Bear Bibeault , Stefan Evans for correcting mistakes. I am able to connect to database. JSP URI should be similar to the one that is in .tld file. Otherwise errors.
I also learned how to present code to other developers in a readable manner.
Thanks to coderanch. A beautiful platform where I'm finding some good solutions to my small problems.


Thanks and Regards,

Hi,

The application is working with the IDE. But when I start deploying the application manually in tomcat webapps it is showing up error at the <body-content> tag. I modified the .tld/b> which contains the URI. I'm listing here complete application source code. Please, suggest...

Source code:

customLib.tld

web.xml


The class EmailAddressValid is created under src folder; compiled and placed under WEB-INF/classes folder.

Error
The compiler is telling the taglib should be terminated by the end tag </taglib> but it is already present. Please help...

Thanks and Regards,
sathish.g.

It all looks fine to me.

What server are you using to run this?

My suggestions:
Remove the tag library declaration from your web.xml file. It is not necessary.
Start again from scratch with a minimal tld file, and get that working.
