Setting up JSTL with Tomcat 5

I am trying to setup JSTL jakarta-taglibs-standard-1.1.0-B1 with Tomcat5.

I am running Windows XP with Tomcat 5 and Java jdk 1.4.2_06

I wish to place the JSTL in the Tomcat shared directory.


How ever my application is sitting in a different folder, I have done this in this way so that future aplpications can sit anywhere and share the JSTL files in the Tomcat shared folder.


The exact cause of the problem is in the index.jsp


i get the following error

exception: org.apache.jasper.JasperException: File "/shared/WEB-INF/tld/c.tld" not found

Please not i do not wish to store the JSTL stuff in E:\BGS_Projects\Java\Web\MnQ\WEB-INF\

File "/shared/WEB-INF/tld/c.tld" not found

Why are you pulling the c.tld file out specifically rather than just letting the container auto-discover the tld file that's in the standard.jar file?
