HI,
anybody knows that what happens when a tag handler class implementing IterationTag returns BodyTag.EVAL_BODY_BUFFERED at its doStartTag() method?

and how about returning EVAL_BODY_INCLUDE when body-content is declared as "empty"?

Cheers,
Alvin

For the first question, answer is:
There qill be a runtime error, when you try to return BodyTag.EVAL_BODY_BUFFERED, as this value is not alloed to return from IterationTag methods. BTW, there will be no compilation or validation errors, as doStartTag must return int value, and BodyTag.EVAL_BODY_BUFFERED is an ordinal int value.
