Subject [taglibs] Proposal to separate out 1.0 functionality
Date Fri, 08 Oct 2010 01:48:49 GMT
The 1.0 taglibs included their own implementation of EL. With EL now being provided by the
JSP container and newer code using the 1.1 tag URIs, this is complexity that would not be
needed for many newer implementation.

I've been wondering if we could refactor the library into two jars: one supporting 1.1 and
later tags and one supporting the original 1.0 tags. Most users who just need the newer functionality
could just use the smaller 1.1 library and only those still using 1.0 tags would need to include
the additional 1.0 support jar.

A further refinement would be to refactor the 1.0 code to use the JSP EL support from javax.el.
