DBTags Tag Library

The DBTags custom tag library contains tags which can be used to read from and write to an SQL database.

DBTags News
03/15/2004 Version 1.0.0 Released. Although DBTtags is mostly replaced by JSTL's SQL, people is still using it (and filling bugs), so we decided to release a new version.
08/21/2001 Version 1.0 Beta 1 Released. Download the DBTags Tag Library 1.0 Beta 1 Release from an Apache Jakarta Project Mirror
08/10/2001 We've extended the resultSet tag so that you can assign RowSets to it. See the docs for details. (It is likely that there will also be a separate rowSet tag in the near future, to give access to the additional properties and allow other RowSet-specific tags.) We expect to go beta very soon!
05/02/2001 The JDBC tag library has been renamed to DBTags! The JAR and TLD files now have different names, but the functionality is identical. You may continue to use the old URI to avoid changes to your JSPs.
DBTags Status

If you are using a recent implementation of the Servlet specification, you should use Jakarta's Standard, which is an implementation of JSTL, not DBTags.
DBTags has been pretty much inactive since development on JSTL began, and it should be considered deprecated for Servlet 2.3 or 2.4 containers.
For more information about the DBTags/JSTL relationship, check the old DBTags State of the Union document.
