When a method is defined as deprecated i get an exception saing that the setter method isn't found.
There is the need to mark it as deprecated to warn the developers that they should not use that attribute but not forbid them of using it (compatibility issues).
The setter methods are inherited (didn't test with class specific deprecaded methods).
I'm using JBoss 3.2.4 over win XP
I had a duplicated taglib but the one that was getting considerer was an very old version of the tags... BAH!!!
Thanx for the time.
