Hi
I'm reading Beginning JSP 2.0 from Wrox Press and I'm stuck. I can't get the new Expression Language to work. I've got J2SE 1.4, Tomcat 5 Beta on Windows 2000. JAVA_HOME, CATALINA_HOME, CLASSPATH and PATH set as per the book.
Sometimes the EL just shows up as literal text eg: ${something} in the HTML output.
Sometimes I get the following error message:
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to initialize TldLocationsCache: The system cannot find the path specified
Help appreciated
Charlie

Welcome to JavaRanch, Charles.
I'm moving this to The JSP Forum...

I got the same book. But there were not many problems for me.
One thing you need to do: download the JSTL tag library and put all its jar file into the
WEB-INF/lib/ folder of every web application you try to build. (there is a simpler way, but need configuration)

Thanks for your reply, Andrew. That is not my mistake however. I've got the jakarta-taglibs 1.0.3 stuff, downloaded in March. The book refers to 1.0.2
so I think I must be up to date.
Baffled,
Charlie
