This appendix provides some information on future directions of the JSP technology.
Meta Tag Information
A tag extension mechanism can include information:
To execute a JSP page that uses the tag library.
To edit a JSP page.
To present the JSP page to the end user.
The JSP 1.1 specification concentrates on the first type of information providing some small
amount of the other type of information; future specifications may address the other pieces.
The tag extension mechanism enables the creation of tag libraries; some application domains
have widespread applicability and there is substantial interest in defining standard tags for
Additional Application Support
We are investigating the benefits and costs of adding additional support for applications into
the JSP specification.
