Nope nothing works. I put the tlds in WEB-INF and then put that in my system class path. Same error. I took this out of the jsp: <%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" %> that resulted in a static page. I put this in my web.xml: http://java.sun.com/jstl/core /WEB-INF that resulted in a dead web-app. I have all the jars from the standard package in C:\Inetpub\JSP-Files\WEB-INF\lib. I have all the included tlds in C:\Inetpub\JSP-Files\WEB-INF I'm at a loss. There must be somethiong more that is necessary and undocumented. For I have tried every suggestion here that I can find and the only one that discusses this issue where they are getting the same thing as me is a post here "Using JSTL for the first time." dated 2/18/04 4:16PM. But his\her fix is the only one I have not tried for I didn't understand what they did. -- George Hester __________________________________ "Dima Gutzeit" wrote in message news:017a01c3fc31$e314bcd0$1400a8c0@dima... 1. You can put all the JAR files of standard library to the WEB-INF/lib directory, without specifying a thing in web.xml. Tomcat searches for .tld files in his classpath (and those tlds are encapsulated in standard.jar) , so it should be enough. 2. You can put your tld files in some directory in classpath , lets say WEB-INF/classes or WEB-INF/lib and specify that location in web.xml. Hope it helps. "George Hester" wrote in message news:c1k2ah$5s0$1@sea.gmane.org... I put all the jars in the standard 1.0 package in \WEB-INF\lib. That didn't work. So I put all the tlds in \WEB-INF. That didn't work either. My error is this: org.apache.jasper.JasperException: This absolute uri (http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core) cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application And my jsp is this: <%@taglib prefix="c" uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" %> Counter Page <%-- Increment Counters --%>

In my Web.xml I have this: http://java.sun.com/jstl/core /WEB-INF/c.tld Nothing helps. Any suggestions? -- George Hester __________________________________ --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: taglibs-user-unsubscribe@jakarta.apache.org For additional commands, e-mail: taglibs-user-help@jakarta.apache.org --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: taglibs-user-unsubscribe@jakarta.apache.org For additional commands, e-mail: taglibs-user-help@jakarta.apache.org
