Class TagData

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class TagData extends Object implements Cloneable
The (translation-time only) attribute/value information for a tag instance.

TagData is only used as an argument to the isValid, validate, and getVariableInfo methods of TagExtraInfo, which are invoked at translation time.

  • Field Details


      public static final Object REQUEST_TIME_VALUE
      Distinguished value for an attribute to indicate its value is a request-time expression (which is not yet available because TagData instances are used at translation-time).
  • Constructor Details

    • TagData

      public TagData(Object[][] atts)
      Constructor for TagData.

      A typical constructor may be

       static final Object[][] att = { { "connection", "conn0" }, { "id", "query0" } };
       static final TagData td = new TagData(att);
      All values must be Strings except for those holding the distinguished object REQUEST_TIME_VALUE.
      atts - the static attribute and values. May be null.

      public String getId()
      The value of the tag's id attribute.

    • getAttribute

      public Object getAttribute(String attName)
      The value of the attribute. If a static value is specified for an attribute that accepts a request-time attribute expression then that static value is returned, even if the value is provided in the body of a <jsp:attribute> action. The distinguished object REQUEST_TIME_VALUE is only returned if the value is specified as a request-time attribute expression or via the <jsp:attribute> action with a body that contains dynamic content (scriptlets, scripting expressions, EL expressions, standard actions, or custom actions). Returns null if the attribute is not set.
