Hello all,

What are the advantages of using custom tags in jsp pages?

Thanks in advance

First and foremost is we can enable web designers to take care of stuff with out worrying about java programmer code inside the jsp page.

They just need to enable and use the tags as needed, without worrying about java scriptlet code that might have been around in the jsp.

While custom tags may make things easier for shops that have a distinct separation of developer/designer duties (not very prevalent in my experience), eliminating Java from the pages has a whole set of advantages even for those of use who are completely Java-savvy but understand the benefits of abstracting processing out of the pages.

So what I am saying is that "making the pages easier for designers" is not the only reason (and to me not even a reason that I think of) to write scriptless pages -- it's got benefits for eveyone.

JSP looks nice, small and it becomes easy to maintain. Reusability increases.
