The JSP TLD Maven Plugin is used to automate the management of JSP Tag Library Descriptors as part of a Maven build. It is intended to decrease the burden on JSP developers associated with writing custom JSP Tag Libraries. The goal is to encourage JSP developers to write better JSP files by using custom JSP Tag Libraries more extensively. The Plugin can process Java annotations on Tag implementation classes and also discover Tag Files (.tag and .tagx files). The Java 5 Annotations recognized by this Plugin are all part of the com.squeakysand.jsp.tagext.annotations package.
