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 J2EEpatterns 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.
