Hi,
When I use JSTL do I just have to import the packages or I have to write the custom tag handlers?

thanks. Please dont laugh because I am new to JSP. In custom tags you had to write the tag handler classes.

Right - the point of JSTL is to provide standard tags that work the same anywhere. As long as you download a JSTL implementation, the hard work has been done for you already. You simply use the right <%@ taglib %> directive and then can use tags like <c ut>, <c:forEach>, etc., without having to program any tag-handler implementation classes yourself.
