For a tag extending SimpleTagSupport can't we declare <body-content> as JSP? I am following HFSJ first edition and I haven't come acroos this.When i am doing whizlabs mock exams i found an explanation for a question that <body-content> for a simpel tag cannot be JSP.


Can somebody explain?

Thanks!

It's given when they explained about JspFragment. It states:

The body of the tag that invokes a simple tag handler is encapsulated in the JspFragment object and then sendto tag handler in the setJspBody() method.

The thing to remember about JspFragment is that it cannot contain scripting elements.

so, since it cannot contain scripting elements, the body-content for a Simple Tag cannot be a JSP.

You'll find some information about the body content here.
