Bug 8378

Summary: <fmt:setLocale> does not allow scope without var

Description David Geary 2002-04-22 19:04:45 UTC
<fmt:setLocale locale='en' scope='session'/> should store an English locale in 
the javax.servlet.jsp.jstl.fmt.locale config setting for session scope. 
Instead, I get this validation error:

Validation error messages from tag library fmt
null: Illegal scope attribute without var in "fmt:setLocale" tag.

Taglib directive of the page that triggered this issue was using a custom URI
("standard-fmt") instead of the "standard" URI ("http://java.sun.com/jstl/fmt")
that is specified in fmt.tld.
Because of this, the FMT TLV did not consider the page's tags as JSTL tags,
prompting it to flag a dangling-scope error where one was not expected.
