change the doAfterBody() to :-



However, if doStartTag() returns EVAL_BODY_BUFFERED, the JSP container
takes a different course of action. It first creates an instance of the BodyContent
class. The BodyContent class is a subclass of JspWriter and overrides all
the print and write methods of JspWriter to buffer any data written into it rather
than sending it to the output stream of the response. The JSP container passes the
newly created BodyContent instance to the tag handler using its setBodyContent()
method, calls doInitBody() on the tag, and finally evaluates the body of
the tag, filling the BodyContent buffer with the result of the body tag evaluation.

Also, needed one clarification....can't you use bodyContent.print() directly instead of
JspWriter out = bodyContent.getEnclosingWriter();
out.print();
I came across the former one in Mikalai Zaikin's notes...awaiting your reply!!!

Check this


Every thing we write using JspWriter will be buffered to BodyContent.
So we must use JspWriter out = bodyContent.getEnclosingWriter() to write something to the output.

Yes Sreeraj...but if you replace the whole class with the one given below, it still works...that's what I was tryin' to say......please check this as well...you can try it out...



Also, I didn't understand one thing....despite the BodyTagSupport class providing an implicit bodyContent field, why did Gowher add one explicitly to hide the implicit one...I don't find any significant reason

My question was whether it's really required to get an output stream by calling getEnclosingWriter() on the bodyContent object just for the purpose of sending the data to the output stream of the response....I mean you could just do it using bodyContent.print() from doAfterBody() or doInitBody()(as shown in the code shown by me above)....the starter of the thread just wanted to achieve this I guess
