Enabling the Hover-Over-Help Feature Using JSP Custom Tags

  • submit to reddit

5    Conclusion

The framework packaged in the MYTagLib.jar can enable the hover-over-help feature in a web or portal application without adding any JavaScript/CSS code into JSP pages during the development phrase. This approach can make it simpler to create and maintain these pages. The framework has been tested in web applications running on WebSphere Application Server (WAS) 6.0 and 6.1, as well as in portal applications running on WebSphere Portal 5.1 and 6.0.

I know you are trying to do this without Javascript, but seriously, it's only one line to include a script library like OverLib and one or two lines to actually use it in your code. No extra CSS necessary.

There's also nothing stopping you from using JSP scriptlets to make sure multiple messages will still point to the same reference.
