Tomcat 5 default body-content for a simple tag

Hi,

The JSP Spec states that the body-content tag must be scriptless as JSP is not a valid body-content for simple tags,
Tomcat behaves otherwise , if we dont provide the body-content for a tag, tomcat defaults to JSP which is not correct according to the Spec.
Please share your thoughts.

Yups, u are correct. i tested this in Tomcat5.0.28. Looks like another inconsistency of Tomcat.

But this creates another question. Is the <body-content> a required *tag* in the TLD ? HFS pg. 467 mentions this as *REQUIRED*. However, tomcat does take JSP as the default value, if it is not present.

Tried looking in the specs, but could not find anywhere about this.

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
