As someone already suggested, you just need to set this mapping in a JSP
1.0 or 1.1 container. As JSTL requires JSP 1.2, you don't need to set it
at all.

The web-app is dead probably because you added the <taglib> in the wrong
order (unfortunately, the order of the elements matter).

Here is the "deal in a nutshell"

1.Don't set <taglib> elements on web.xml

2.Make sure you are using the right JAR files (standard.jar and
jstl.jar) according to the JSP version your server supports. For JSP 1.2
(like tomcat 4.x) it's JSTL 1.0 (latest is 1.0.5); for JSP 2.0 (like
tomcat 5.x) is JSP 1.1 (latest is 1.1.0).

3.Make sure you use the right URL:

JSTL 1.0 ->
JSTL 1.1 ->
