As you look over this tag, you will see that it first extends the TagSupport class. This is the
helper class for tags without bodies. It provides default implementations for the methods
defined in the Tag interface. The next thing you should notice is the two methods that are over-
ridden from the TagSupport class: doEndTag() and release() .
