Subject Re: Proposal for tag library
Date Fri, 07 Nov 2003 19:59:37 GMT
What about soemthing more "generic" I.E. Jars and filesystems can be 
mounted as JNDI resources, we have a jndi taglibrary, maybe "flavors" of 
a JNDI taglibrary oriented towards Jar or Filesystem SP's? I understand 
much of the mechanism for mounting webapplications into tomcat relies on 
this?
