Class BreadcrumbsTag

  • All Implemented Interfaces:, javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.IterationTag, javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.JspTag, javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.Tag, javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.TryCatchFinally

    public class BreadcrumbsTag
    extends WikiTagBase
    Implement a "breadcrumb" (most recently visited) trail. This tag can be added to any view jsp page. Separate breadcrumb trails are not tracked across multiple browser windows.
    The optional attributes are:

    maxpages, the number of pages to store, 10 by default
    separator, the separator string to use between pages, " | " by default

    This class is implemented by storing a breadcrumb trail, which is a fixed size queue, into a session variable "breadCrumbTrail". This queue is displayed as a series of links separated by a separator character.
