I am new to Jakarta Tag libs and I am trying my hand for the first time. I am interested in database tags. For that I followed the documentation provided at jakarta site. But I still get this error. org.apache.jasper.JasperException: This absolute uri (http://jakarta.apache.org/taglibs/dbtags) cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application web.xml looks like this: <!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN" "http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-app_2_3.dtd"> <web-app> <taglib> <taglib-uri> http://jakarta.apache.org/taglibs/dbtags </taglib-uri> <taglib-location> /WEB-INF/dbtags.tld </taglib-location> </taglib> </web-app>
location of my jar file is : /WEB-INF/lib/dbtags.jar I am currently using Tomcat401.
I'm assuming the tld files are part of the jar. I haven't looked heavily into the jakarta tags yet. If so, your tagib location should be /WEB-INF/lib/dbtags.jar. Otherwise, you need to make sure that dbtags.tld is in the WEB-INF folder. [ April 23, 2003: Message edited by: Matthew Phillips ]
