Well this question is repeated here in forum a lot of times but I have never got satisfactory reply. may be because I did not frame it properly. Lets try one more time. So here goes my question:

I want to show java, xml or whatever; source code in my jsp pages to user, means in the browser. I have seen in many blogs, jForum and now in coderanch that whenever we make use of code tags the code taking a very good formatting and style. Is there any open source libraries available to achieve this?

Waiting for a positive response.

There's no secret to it - JForum (and numerous other sites) use the http://code.google.com/p/syntaxhighlighter/ library, which uses a combination of JavaScript and CSS to achieve its magic. If you examine the source code of a page that has a CODE tag you'll see it in action.

Thanks Ulf. Let me try this also. Really happy to get a prompt reply as expected here.
 
I am displeased. You are no longer allowed to read this tiny ad:
