Is it true that Simple tag handlers does not have any default value for its body content?I guess body content is not a mandatory element in tld.In that case if we dont specify one for a tag handler implementing simple tag,what will happen?

There's an entry in the FAQ about this : http://faq.javaranch.com/view?BodyTagContent

What will happen if you don't specify a value for the body content ? Who knows ? It might depend on the container, so don't rely on it and always set the body content.

Santou,
I just noticed from the jsp spec that body-content is a mandatory element for <tag>.I guess default value is no longer valid for jsp 2.0,only tag files have default values and the value is scriptless
