Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP7 Programmer's Guide to 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)>

In the sun-web.xml file, white space is treated as part of the data in a data element. Therefore, there should be no extra white space before or after the data delimited by a data element. For example:

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