I'm confused. How do I go about trying to find a suitable tag for a particular piece of code e.g. browse button, search button etc. I know that these exist in tag libraries - but how do you actually identify the right one? Are there web sites showing an image of say, the browse button, along with the tag required (and params)?
I have looked at a couple of libraries - they don't seem to be too user - friendly though.

Hello Rob Petterson,
type=file in the input tag of HTML gives a textfield with browse button which can be used for file upload.It is no way related to Taglibs.

Thanks ravi.
So where do I find a resource for useful tags?
The book I've got is 'JSP web development' by Wrox. It doesn�t really go into too many examples of tags but more on the basics of the Java language and the architectures when using JSP.
Ani ideas??

There are a few good resources around the web, but one that is particularly good is http://jakarta.apache.org/taglibs - it contains a whole bunch of open source tag libraries, including the reference implementation of the JSP Standard Tag Library too.
Hope that helps
Simon

Thanks Simon for the info.
I am new to JSP. Can you please explain to this 'newby' the process involved in say, let's take the example trying to find the correct tag for producing a search window, where you can enter a key word where it will find all matches from your table data stored on a server.
I'm sorry to keep on banging on about this issue.
I still seem to be missing a few pieces of the puzzle.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
