    ****************************************************************
    A JSP page in standard and document format that declare a
    namespace and uses this as the prefix of a dynamic attribute
    in a JSP tag causes a JSP translation error.
    A namespace can be declared using the JSP taglib directive or
    using the xmlns prefix in JSP files in standard and document
    form, respectively; however, either type of declaration
    originates the following exception when using the fully
    qualified name dynamic attribute:
    com.ibm.ws.jsp.translator.JspTranslationException:
    JSPG0227E: Exception caught while translating /test.jsp:
    JSPG0299E: The dynamic attribute prefix:attributeName has a
    prefix that does not map to a namespace.
    at
    com.ibm.ws.jsp.translator.visitor.generator.BaseTagGenerator.gen
    erateSetters(BaseTagGenerator.java:287)
    ...
    The following example will produce the issue:
    <%@ taglib prefix="dynamicAttributes" uri="/dynamicAttributes"
    %>
    <%@ taglib prefix="test" uri="/test" %>
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>PI43036</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <dynamicAttributes:simpleTag
    test:dynamicAttributeName="This will fail." />
    </body>
    </html>
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JSP container was modified to register the namespaces
    accordingly to resolve the JSPG0299E error.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.0.0.12 and 8.5.5.8.  Please refer to the
