You can use a TagLibraryValidator class to enforce arbitrary
characteristics of the XML view of a JSP page, including specific
relationships among tags.  For an example of a SAX-based approach to
validation, see the JstlCoreTLV class in the "Standard" taglib.

Tags can also, at runtime, gain access to their parent tag handlers.  The
most convenient mechanism for doing this is, in most cases, the static
TagSupport.findAncestorWithClass() method, part of the JSP API.

Hope that helps,
