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.
