<tablib uri="myURI" prefix="my"/>

It is used to load a taglib file, which defines a set of static methods that can be used in EL expressions (so called EL functions).

For example, we could load functions defined in the built-in TLD files identified as http://www.zkoss.org/dsp/web/core, and then use the toLowerCase function.

<taglib uri="http://www.zkoss.org/dsp/web/core" prefix="c"/>
<action pattern="/hello" method="c:toLowerCase(request.method)" class="foo.Hello"> 

If you want to load a TLD file from your Web application, you can specify the path directly. For example, suppose you have a custom TLD at /WEB-INF/tld/my.tld, then you could specify it as follows.

 <taglib uri="/WEB-INF/tld/my.tld" prefix="my"/>

For more information about the syntax of a custom taglib, please refer to ZUML Reference.

If you'd like to define a couple of EL functions, you could use the xel-method element instead.


The uri Attribute

[Required][EL is not allowed]

A URL of the taglib file. Unlike other URL and URI, it doesn't interpret ~ or * specially. And, the page and the taglib files it references must be in the same Web application.

The prefix Attribute


A prefix used to identify functions defined in this taglib file. The prefix could be any non-empty string.
