Well there is a lot to say - a whole book in fact! smilie

From a high level, tags are just simple syntax for what are often complex
operations like accessing a database or interacting with EJB's. HTML
developers can use tags to evoke Java functionality that has been written by
Java developers without having to understand what is happening behind the

Thanks for your interest,
