Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 4 Developer's Guide to Java Web Applications


Some elements contain character data instead of subelements. These elements have definitions of the following format:

<!ELEMENT element-name (#PCDATA)/>

For example:

<!ELEMENT description (#PCDATA)/>

<description/>class name of session manager</description>
