I am new to JSP as well, but I might help you.

Did you check if you have the jstl.jar file under your yourWebbApp/WEB-INF/lib directory?
If you don't have it, then you have to copy it there, stop and restart your container.

I hope this helps!

You can only use JSTL (Suns's ready made tags) if you have a copy of the correct jar in your WEB-INF/lib directory.

The name of the jar is jstl.jar and if you are running Tomcat you can find it at webapps/jsp-examples/WEB-INF/lib/jstl.jar in your tomcat hierarchy.

Be sure to copy the jar from there into the WEB-INF/lib directory of all your web-apps that will use JSTL standard tags. This is because thay are not imported by default.

I hope this explains things. If you are not running tomcat I'm sure you can download the jar from Sun at some place.
I agree. Here's the link:
