Hi Rachers,

This question is from HFSJ mock exam 10. Q. 9

Given:
10. public class BufTag extends BodyTagSupport {
11. public int doStartTag() throws JspException {
12. // insert code here
13. }
14. }
Assume that the tag has been properly configured to allow body content.
Which, if inserted at line 12, would cause the JSP code
<mytags:mytag>BodyContent</mytags:mytag> to output
BodyContent?
A. return SKIP_BODY;
B. return EVAL_BODY_INCLUDE;
C. return EVAL_BODY_BUFFERED;
D. return BODY_CONTENT;



The correct answer is B. where as I tend to go for option C. the explanantion given is

Option C is invalid because it directs the body of the tag to a buffer which this tag does not process.




Can someone please explain?

Thanks
Shobhan

Hi Shobhan,

The body is buffered into the BodyContent object and only output to the page if you do so in your TagHandler code:
