They're made for specific purposes and you might need to make one for your own application if you can't find any that meet your needs and they're essential to make JSP pages that are scriptless. Even the JSTL is made up of custom tags, it's only called standard since the most commonly used tags have been put together with a specific syntax and behaviour. You could make similar tags on your own.
