I many tutorials and articles, but no one of them can help me to solve my problem!
I am using JSTL 1.1, I downloaded from sun and put the unzipped jar file into to Tomcat5.0(in <tomcat-home>/command/lib directory);
the following taglib directive is added to the jsp file:
<%@taglib uri="" prefix="c" %>
I also added the following to web.xml, but I down know what is the content of tablib-location ? I know that it may be a .tld file's location, but if it is, where is the .tld file? i can't find it in JSTL downloaded JSTL! is that need to create the tag library descripter ourself ?

Download the Jakarta standard 1.1 taglibs from
Installation is very simple.Just copy the jstl.jar and standard.jar in the WEB-INF\lib directory of your web application and it works.
