well... on very first thoughts.. this is what i think -

tei stands for "tag extra information"
so <tei-class> means a class that give some extra information to a tag.
now the question is, which tag ? the pbvious answer is - your tag.

so to sum up - "when you use the tag "myTag" in your JSP, the tag handler that will be executed is "MyTag.java" and the <tei-class> element is like telling the container - 'when MyTag.java will run, it will need some extra information, that should be picked from MyTagInfo.java".

to add to this - from my experience at job - if MyTag.java doesnt find the tei class you are sure to get a run time error when the page is requested.


this does sound logical for me (i didnt google, nor did i found anything in the servelt/jsp specs)

correct me if i am wrong

<required>true</required>
<rtexprvalue>true</rtexprvalue>

Well <type> is an optional but valid tag inside <attribute> tag, and yes i got this question in a mock exam.

this does sound logical for me (i didnt google, nor did i found anything in the servelt/jsp specs)

<tei-class> specifies a subclass of TagExtraInfo.

This class can be used:
�to indicate that the tag defines scripting variables
�to perform translation-time validation of the tag attributes.



For more details check out JSP.13.9.8 in JSP 2.0 spec.
