Ok, first some code. Here's the contents of my displayCollection.tag:


Here's the JSP I'm calling it from (myq.jsp):


Here's the java class for irCollection (used in the tag file):


And finally, here's the error I get when i try to run myq.jsp:

as far as I can tell, the attribute mgr is set in myq.jsp when it invokes displayCollection.tag, and displayCOllection.tag's only attribute (required) is mgr. so uhm... what do I misunderstand?

I'd say the error is pretty clear. You omitted a required attribute.

yes, but, WHAT attribute? There's only one attribute in the tag "mgr" and I set that, didn't I?

It's not complaining about your tag, but the setProperty tag on line 7. Actually read the error message:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: /WEB-INF/tags/displayCollection.tag(7,2) SetProperty: Mandatory attribute property missing

The setProperty tag has three attributes

1) name: value that matches the id of the useBean tag
2) property: the name of the bean's property to set
3) value: the value to set

You combined the name and property value into one attribute. It does not like when you do that.

P.S. I'd recommend following established conventions and starting class name with a capital letter.
