Hi,

What would be the output if the body-content of the tld is tagdependent, then the body of the tag has expression?

<my:Classic name="Chris Marlo Magpantay">
<%=3*4%>
</my:Classic>

The correct answer in the enthuware mock exam is "<%=3*4%>". But when I tried it my sample app, it outputed nothing or blank. Can somebody please explain this? Thanks!

Check the HTML source. You probably can't see it in the browser because it appears to be a tag.

But in the exam, is the correct answer really "<%=3*4%>"?

If there were such a question, I'd say yes.

Hi Marlo ,

But in the exam, is the correct answer really "<%=3*4%>"?

It depends on the context of the question.

If the body-content of the tld is tagdependent the body <%=3*4%> is given to the tag handler code and it depends on that code if it outputs the body. If the tag handler code is not given in the question then the correct answer is that the body is not writen to the page. (by default it is not output)

Regards,
Frits

Thanks Frits! I forgot to mention that the question said the tag handler code prints the body. So in that case, the correct answer is "<%=3*4%>".
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
