Hi,
I am new to this tag libraries stuff. I am trying to create my own tags. I am having problem in working with collaborating tags. I have 5 tags which i have created. I want to use all these tags in my JSP Page. The very first tag i have is form tag, which is getting invoked but later on none of the tags get called. some of my tags extend TagSupport and BodyTagSupport. I don't see any errors in my console window. I am having problem in understanding which methods of TagSupport class to override , their pageContext and their return type. Could anyone please help me unserstand what i might be doing wrong and help to find some resources on reading more about method invocation order in creating custom tags that will help.
Appreciate u'r help!
Thanks,

There is a nice tutorial on custom tags at www.orionserver.com
Also chapter 11 in my Servlets and JSP book covers custom tags.
