Subject In the move of some taglibs to Tomcat, the BSF taglib got retired
Date Fri, 09 Oct 2009 10:18:31 GMT
Hi there,

just learned from the announcement that in the process of moving taglibs
from Jakarta to Tomcat a lot of taglibs got retired, among them the BSF

Not sure at the moment how Tomcat will allow for creating JSPs that
embed code in scripting languages, which was one of the original
applications of BSF, when it was originally developed at IBM (as a
matter of fact, IBM's WebSphere distributed BSF in order to enable Java
Server Page authors to embed scripts in any of its supported scripting
languages, very much like MS allows for in their ASPs).

So for those who have a need for the BSF taglib, here the relevant links:
