This appendix contains reference material for the custom action elements in the standard JSF tag libraries that you can use in JSP pages.
Each action element is described with an overview, a syntax
reference, an attribute table, and an example. The syntax reference
shows all supported attributes, with optional attributes embedded in
square brackets (
). Mutually exclusive
attributes are separated with vertical bars (
For attributes that accept predefined values, all values are listed
separated with vertical bars; the default value (if any) is in
boldface. Italics are used for attribute values that
don’t have a fixed set of accepted values.
The attributes table has an EL expression type column, with the
values None, Any, VB, or MB. None means that a static attribute value
must be used. Any means that a static value or any type of JSF EL
expression can be used, including EL expressions containing any of
the EL operators. VB means that the value can be a static value
(unless otherwise noted) or a value binding expression, i.e., the EL
subset that identifies a read/write bean property, a
java.util.List or array element, a
java.util.Map value, or a simple scoped variable.
MB means that the value must be a method binding, with the method
signature described in the description column.
