Implementors of JSTL and authors of JSP pages may find the The JavaServer Pages™ Standard Tag Library (JSTL) specification is the result. The JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Library (JSTL) is a component of the Java EE Web application development platform. It extends the JSP specification by. Apache hosts the Apache Standard Taglib, an implementation of the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL) specification. Various versions are.

We’ll then go through the other configuration settings as well as the available interfaces. Isn’t that business logic that belongs in the model? Well okay, that might be too optimistic to hope for since anyone who has developed applications for jztl use knows there is always something that needs to be tweaked. These general-purpose actions also encompass error handling.

No more creating your own iteration action for the tenth time. Writing Output to the JspWriter There are four general-purpose tags. It should be obvious that: Iterator actions that make it easy to iterate through collections of Objects. Working with the Internationalization and Formatting Actions More than likely, the application you are developing today will have to be internationalized tomorrow.

We will talk about this in more detail later in this chapter, but as a quick example, so that you are familiar with the format, the action might look like:. Expressions in template text are not supported if you are using JSTL 1. If we were accessing the English version of the resource bundle,Welcome Sue would appear in the JspWriter. Using the Expression Language Before we dive into the various functional areas in the JSTL, we should start with the expression language.

More than likely, the application jsgl are developing today will have to be internationalized tomorrow. Have you heard about the JSTL but aren’t quite sure of how to make the best use of it?

If the identifier isn’t found in any scope, then a null value is returned. Why then are these actions even provided in the Specofication To address both of these functional areas, let’s first take a cursory look at what pieces are involved in creating international applications. It is used to output to the current JspWriter.

Making database queries Accessing query results Performing database modifications Database transactions What all of the SQL actions have in common is that they specificatiin against a specific data source. The I18N functional area can be broken down into two main areas: In another example, we might want to output some data specidication that have been stored in a scoped variable called myData. The following sections are excerpted from various chapters within the JSTL: Coercion means that the page author isn’t responsible for converting parameters into the appropriate objects or primitives.


JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Library

The community has asked for it, the community has gotten it. These libraries are defined by the Tag Library Descriptor files. The answer is yes.

Then we’ll look at how jxtl pieces can be put to work using the various actions available in the JSTL. There has always been a need although not a requirement that the page authors have some understanding of a programming language usually Java in order to create complex pages.

In this chapter, we’ll explore these internationalization actions. The page author is the person who builds the JSP pages.

Formatting for numbers, dates, and currency, which includes such actions as:. Having automatic type conversions can save unnecessary exceptions from happening. Using separate TLDs also allows each library to have its own namespace. This dilemma is what has hampered the true role separation between the JSP page author and the Java programmer.
