This is a simple JSP custom tags library with tag body. Just like the JSF counterpart , it splits a string and repeats the body for each word, i.e., with this markup: <%@ taglib uri="http://custom.tag.com/demo" prefix... output: <html> <body> <p>Hello Tigger!</p> <p>H... With Maven, this is the directory structure: ./src ./src/main ./src/main/resources ./s...

This is an example that uses tag handler, UI component and renderer together to support a custom taglib. The main purpose is to show how these components play together. The tag renders <ui:param name="extra" value="el interpreted"/> ... as <h3>my:foreach</h3> <ul class="css class" extra...

In the simple taglib example , I used a tag handler class to implement a taglib. This is an example to implement a taglib with a UI component. The purpose is to use a custom tag to split a string and print each part in a separate paragraph, i.e., print <p>john</p> <p>steve</p> <p>mike</p> with custom tag <my:foreach> : <my:foreach var="who" value="john steve mike"> ... These are the files: pom.xml <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"... src/main/java/com/example/UIForeash.java : package com.example; import java.io.IOExcep... src/main/resources/META-INF/faces-config.xml : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <faces-c... src/main/resources/META-INF/foreach.taglib.xml : <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <facelet... How to use: Put the JAR file generated by the above project in the WEB-INF/lib folder of the web app. If the web app is a Maven project, just add the taglib project as a dependency:...

There are two distinct ways to process XPath: with namespace and without namespace. The code is different depending on whether the parser is namespace aware. Code without namespace: import java.io.*; import javax.xml.parsers.*; ... code with namespace: import java.io.*; import java.util.Iterator; ... XML without namespace: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="n... XML with namespace: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="n... The same XPath expression works for both XML files when the parser is not namespace aware. When the parser is namespace aware, you have to adjust the XPath accordingly depending on whether the XML has namespace declarations: " /test-license/licensee/name/text() " works for the XML file without namespace, while " /p:test-license/p:licensee/p:name/text() " works for the XML file with namespace.

In this note I'll show you how to create and package a JSP custom tag. The purpose of this tag is to display a random splash image for a home page, among a set of images. We should be able to add or delete candidate splash images from the WAR archive without the need to change the JSP. This is the intended use of the tag: <%@ taglib uri="http://custom.tag.com/demo" prefix... In the above example you provide a set of images named splash*.png (e.g., splash1.png, spalsh2.png, ...), and the tag will pick a random one to display when the JSP is rendered. Let's get started. I'll use Maven for this purpose. Create the standard Maven directory structure ./pom.xml ./src ./src/main ./src/main/jav... pom.xml <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"... SplashTag.java package tagdemo; import java.util.ArrayList......

This is a script to tail a log file through the web browser. It uses AJAX, apache web server, mod_python, UNIX utilities tail (requires the --lines switch) and wc . The log file may reside on the web server or any other host accessible from the web server through SSH. Although it's written in python, it should be easy to port to other languages such as Perl. Apache httpd.conf : LoadModule python_module modules/mod_python.so ... Python script: import time, os from os.path import basename ...
