Can I make a jsp custom tag to return a value in to a jsp variable.

Niko Schmuck

I'm afraid but this is not possible AFAIK, when i got you right you want to use a construction like:

<% boolean myResult = <jsp:test foo='bar'/> %>

and you cannot nest custom jsp tags in jsp expressions, but you could (though this is only an idea) access a parent custom tag with the help of
from your jsp code and with the tag object available call a specific method


  <% FooTag ft = (FooTag) TagSupport.findAncestorWithClass([null?], FooTag.class);

  boolean res = ft.getResult();
