taglib directive for tag files

I know if a tag file is not inside a jar, we don't need to make a TLD file for it and just use a "tagdir" attribute to describe the location of the tag file.
But when the tag file is inside a jar/META-INF and we have to make a TLD file for it. For example, if the TLD looks like this:
In this case, when we want to use the the tag file in a
file, what does the taglib directive look like? Should we use the "tagdir" attribute or "uri" attribute?
Which one is right:
<%@taglib tagdir="/META-INF/tags/Header.tag" %>
<%@taglib uri="myTagFile" %>
or neither of them are right? Thank you.

You can only use the uri.
According to the spec, a translation error must occur if the value of tagdir does not start with /WEB-INF/tags/.
