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.

E:\Java\Tomcat5\shared\lib\standard.jar
E:\Java\Tomcat5\shared\lib\jstl.jar
E:\Java\Tomcat5\shared\tld\...

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.

E:\BGS_Projects\Java\Web\MnQ

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

E:\BGS_Projects\Java\Web\MnQ\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\

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?
