The Display tag library is a JSP Taglib that provides the advanced formatting and display of tables. As well as the ability to do simple things like style the data, it can also transform it using decorators, provide automatic searching, paging, grouping and even export to CSV, Excel or XML! I deal daily with tabled data and this taglib will be an absolute godsend. To get a good idea of what the taglib is capable of check the “live examples(JSP Display Tag in action)”:http://www.displaytag.org/displaytag-1.0-b1-examples/index.jsp.
