Subject Re: S2 - custom tag with Spring
Date Wed, 04 Dec 2013 10:51:10 GMT
I think I missed something.

To be clear what I meant by tag as jsp tag with tld defined.
Yes my resource beans are defined in Spring, using XML actually. However my
tag classes are not.

>From what I understand, the life cycle of tag is controlled by the web
container therefore not defined in Spring.
However I know that Struts tags do get intervened by Struts during the life
cycle that's why using the Struts @Inject works.
But when Struts inject its own resource, does it/will it inject resource
defined in Spring?

Or did I miss something?
