I think you have misunderstood the concept behind javaranch. It will help you to grow and learn only if will do some effort at your side. Java ranch will help you to clear the concept if you have any confusion, or help you to start up if you want to learn anything new.
This is quite simple question, if you read the HFSJ chapter 10 or last pages of Chapter 9. you will get the answer of this question. If you still find some difficulties then you can any time come to javaranch, people are here to clear your concept.
First you should know the difference between tag handler and tag files. if you see the tag handler and tag files there is one similarity: they both are invoked using <prefix:TAGGING>
Now there must be a tag library which help to decide jsp container which method or file to be invoked.
now in case of tag handler we provide a tld file. but in case of tag files we dont provide any thing..! so container has to generate it by its own. Rules doesn't change for tag files. we still need a kind of mapping.

Jain, your answer is right upto some extent... But first you should clear the difference between what is implicit mapping and explicit mapping?
When we define the taglib element and its child elements as tablib-uri and taglib-location, that is called the explicit mapping.
But when we only define the uri in tld files, it is called implicit mapping.
So un case of JSTL tag libraries, if we define, uri through taglib element, then whatever the mapping is generated is called, implicit mapping.
