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 Detail


        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).

         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.

      • 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.
        attName - the name of the attribute
        the attribute's value
