ZK JSP Tags support all ZUL components. That is, every ZUL component has a corresponding JSP tag. If you want to make your custom ZK component(ex: a Composite Component ) as a JSP tag, you could do as follows:

1. Create a Java class like this:

public class FooTag extends org.zkoss.jsp.zul.impl.BranchTag {
    protected String getJspTagName(){
        return "foo";// the component name you defined in lang-addon.xml
    }
}

ZK will invoke getJspTagName() method to get the tag name. The name will be used to look for the component definition from the ZUL component set.

Notice that the name must be the same you specify in your component definition.

2. Follow the JSP specification to declare your JSP tag in TLD. For example:

<tag>
<name>foo</name>
    <tag-class>com.foo.FooTag</tag-class>
    <body-content>scriptless</body-content>
    <dynamic-attribute>true</dynamic-attribute>
    <attribute> 
        <name>if</name>
        <required>false</required>
        <rtexprvalue>true</rtexprvalue>
    </attribute>
    <attribute> 
        <name>unless</name>
        <required>false</required>
        <rtexprvalue>true</rtexprvalue>
    </attribute>
    <attribute> 
        <name>apply</name>
        <required>false</required>
        <rtexprvalue>true</rtexprvalue>
    </attribute>
    <attribute> 
        <name>use</name>
        <required>false</required>
        <rtexprvalue>true</rtexprvalue>
    </attribute>
    <attribute> 
        <name>forward</name>
        <required>false</required>
        <rtexprvalue>true</rtexprvalue>
    </attribute>
</tag>

Although the dynamic attribute can be set true and JSP will accept all kinds of attributes, you still need to add the special attributes in your JSP tag definition. The special attributes include if, unless, apply, use, and forward.

3. Use TLD in JSP document with <%@ taglib%> After the tag definition is done, you could use it in JSP document just like any other JSP tags. Of course, you have to specify TLD first.
