It is about HFSJ:

Question 54 (version SCWCD 1.4):

Given a tag library descriptor located at /mywebapp/WEB-INF/tlds/mytags.tld which would be the correct taglib directive? Assume mywebapp is the web application root and that there ara no <taglib> tags in the deployment descriptor.

A. <%@ taglib uri="/mytags.tld" prefix="my" %>
B. <%@ taglib uri="/tlds/mytags.tld" prefix="my" %>
C. <%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/tlds/mytags.tld" prefix="my" %>
D. <%@ taglib uri="/mywebapp/WEB-INF/tlds/mytags.tld" prefix="my" %>
E. /mywebapp/WEB-INF/tlds/mytags.tld is NOT a valid location for a tag library descriptor, so none of these will work

The correct answer is C because, in the abscence of a <taglib> element in the DD, the URI must be a full path relative to the application root.


I think it is false. If the tld, as it is located on /WEB-INF/tlds/, has a <uri>MY_URI_NAME</uri>, then, the correct answer should be:

<%@ taglib uri="MY_URI_NAME" prefix="my" %>

The uri name determines the uri attribute of the taglib determine.

Am i confused?

Better than an Eratta, a post by the exam author:

Essentially what you post is entirely correct, but not in the "spirit" of the question.
