  • Steps to reproduce

Create 2 files


<%@ taglib prefix="t" tagdir="/WEB-INF/tags"%>

<t:sonartemplate>test content</t:sonartemplate>


<!DOCTYPE html>
<%@ tag language="java" description="Template to reproduce Sonar JSP issue"%>
		<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

Extra details:
The compiled jsp in the target/sonar directory has lines

    //  t:sonartemplate
    org.apache.jsp.tag.web.sonartemplate_tag _jspx_th_t_005fsonartemplate_005f0 = new org.apache.jsp.tag.web.sonartemplate_tag();

The compiled tag is also existing in the target/sonar directory but maybe not added to the sonar analyzer properly.
