I have been doing fine with JSP but recently started to learn Custom tags & JSTL(JSP standard tag library) but immediately got confused since I have not been able to get all the things very easily. Someone please tell me if I need to learn J2EE patterns before moving to JSP cutom tags & standard tag library. I have downloaded the JSTL 1.0 specifications from SUN and trying to catch the things. Pls. suggest from where to start for Custom tags & JSTL.
If there are some tutorials on the net, pls. also provide the links.

Best wishes,

Check out More Serlvets and JavaServer Pages by Marty Hall -- Part V It covers all the New Tag Library functions introduced in JSP 1.2 including JSTL.
Hall has a very good way of explaining things. I think it will help a lot.
