Tag put

Put an attribute into tile/component/template context.

Define an attribute to pass to tile/component/template. This tag can only be used inside 'insert' or 'definition' tag. Value (or content) is specified using attribute 'value' (or 'content'), or using the tag body. It is also possible to specify the type of the value :

If 'type' attribute is not specified, content is 'untyped', unless it comes from a typed bean.

Note that using 'direct="true"' is equivalent to 'type="string"'.
