    public class PrincipalTag
    extends SecureTag

    Tag used to print out the String value of a user's default principal, or a specific principal as specified by the tag's attributes.

    If no attributes are specified, the tag prints out the toString() value of the user's default principal. If the type attribute is specified, the tag looks for a principal with the given type. If the property attribute is specified, the tag prints the string value of the specified property of the principal. If no principal is found or the user is not authenticated, the tag displays nothing unless a defaultValue is specified.
