Hi Folks,

In HFSJ, Chapter 7 (Using JSP), tags in DD are mentioned for disabling EL usage as,


Now, Problem is I am using Eclipse and when I open my web.xml and right click on <web-app> tag, select Add child, then in the available options, i can not find <jsp-config> tag. Can anybody suggest me what DTD is being used on JSP2.0 in J2EE1.4. I went on sun site at

web-app_2_3.dtd XML DTD for a Servlet 2.3 web-app (war) module

which is 2.3 not 2.4.

thanks * regards,
