      Description

      Reported to the Java EE Documentation mailing list from a user.

      The section "Defining the Custom Component Tag in a Tag Library Descriptor" in the Java EE 6 Tutorial is very poorly documented. Using the information provided, I have been quite unsuccessful in making my own tag libraries.

      I need the following information, which is absent from the section in question, before I can define my own custom component tag in a tag library descriptor:

      • A pointer to where I can find complete reference and definition of tag libraries.
      • A working/correct example (included snippet seems/is wrong, namespace in particular)
      • Instructions that tell me where I need to put the final tag library, how I can later use the tag library, and how I get to use my custom tag.

      For my custom tag I've been implementing the new "video"-tag for html5. I think this is a good example, that also gives the possibility of adding resources into the example.

        We are putting a full working example that uses a custom component and tag library into the tutorial for the next version. This will include adding some information about this example to "Defining the Custom Component Tag in a Tag Library Descriptor" as well as many other sections.
