 Description  « Hide

Chapter PLT.26 contains a statement that the v2.0 portlet container must support the
V1.0 tag library in order to support V1.0 portlets. However, it does not mention whether
V2.0 portlets using the V1.0 tag library should be supported. See text below.

Working Document 3 (22.04.13) Section "PLT.26 Portlet Tag Library", lines 17-20 on page 207:
-------------------------
In order to support Java Portlet Specification V1.0 portlets that references the V1.0
tag library via
<%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/portlet" prefix="portlet" %>
the portlet container must also support the V1.0 tag library defined in JSR 168.
-------------------------

My take would be that we should be as permissive as possible in this case, and allow
the use of the V1.0 tag library with V2.0 portlets, should anybody wish to do so. I
propose an addition to the text as follows:

Corrected:
-------------------------
In order to support Java Portlet Specification V1.0 portlets that reference the V1.0
tag library via
<%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/portlet" prefix="portlet" %>
the portlet container must also support the V1.0 tag library defined in JSR 168.

Java Portlet Specification 2.0 Portlets may reference the V1.0 library.
