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


Elements that have ATTLIST tags contain attributes (name-value pairs). For example:

<!ATTLIST     cachemax-capacity CDATA     "4096"
              timeout           CDATA     "30"
              enabled           %boolean; "false">
A cache element can contain max-capacity, timeout, and enabled attributes.

The #REQUIRED label means that a value must be supplied. The #IMPLIED label means that the attribute is optional, and that Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 generates a default value. Wherever possible, explicit defaults for optional attributes (such as "true") are listed.

Attribute declarations specify the type of the attribute. For example, CDATA means character data, and %boolean is a predefined enumeration.
