Subject Re: Why are tag files always compiled to class files?
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2005 16:27:13 GMT
Yeah, I ran into this too. It would require a refactoring of jasper to allow 
this. The last time I looked into this - at first glance, it appeared the tag 
file need compiled so that all of its properties can be looked up for pages 
which used that tag file.
