To start off a nested hierarchy without the need for a form
This tag is provided to allow the nested tags to find a common bean reference without the need for a form and its relative overhead. As long as the
name attribute of this tag matches the name of a bean in scope of the JSP (ie: Struts tags can find it via usual means). For example you can load a bean for use with the
The tag can also be used without specifying the
name attribute, but this is only in the case that the current JSP is a dynamic include specified in another file. You will not be able to run the tag without a name unless this inclusion is in place. Otherwise the nested tags will not have the bean and property references that they need to provide their logic.
Note: The access to a bean via the
name attribute takes priority over looking for the reference from other parent tags. So if a name is specified, a bean will have to be there waiting for it. It was made this way so that you could use separate beans within a JSP that itself is an inclusion into another.
|The name of the bean by which all child nested tags will derive their bean reference from.
