[ENH] JSTL Expression Language JSP Tags





------- Additional Comments From weaver@apache.org  2003-05-27 20:35 -------

JSTL actually falls under auspices of the Jakarta taglibs sub-project, so 
adding it to the Jetspeed repository offers no licensing conflicts.  The only 
reason I asked is that I know there is a movement to clean up the jar files 
used by Jetspeed.

For all intents and purposes, a JSTL tag is no different from a regular custom 
tag, save for the fact that it is aware of and can process JSTL expression 
language, EL, (looks very similar to Velocity).  The JSTL api comes with an EL 
evaluator, so all I am really doing is sub-classing each existing Jetspeed tag  
and overriding methods to process EL statements.  All new tag classes have the 
same name as the parent class prefixed with "EL".  There is also a seperate TLD 
that describes the JSTL tags. I am using a naming convention/development 
approach similar to how Struts integrates JSTL.
