How to Parse a RSS Feed in Java

A while back I was required to parse an rss feed on my company’s website.  Having little experience with Java Tag Libraries (.tld), I decided to give one a try.  The following is how I implemented RSS into a JSP page.

Import and include the tag library into your project.

In this case it is rssutils.tld and rssutils.jar.  This can be achieved many different ways either in the XML configuration or in the GUI Editor’s Import function (i.e. File > Import or Tools > Manage Libraries) etc.
