Am stuck with Tag Libraries. the engine shows me 'not found' error. I havs follwed the following steps :

1) I hav created a SimpleTag.class and stored it in /webapps/root/egPM/WEB-INF/classes/.
2) Have created a TLD and stored it in /webapps/root/egPM/WEB-INF/.
The code in the TLD is :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<!DOCTYPE taglib PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD JSP Tag Library 1.1//EN" "">

<info>My tag library descriptor file</info>


3) in the /webapps/root/egPM/WEB-INF/web.xml file I hav added the following code :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<!DOCTYPE web-app
PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"

<display-name>Welcome to Tomcat</display-name>
Welcome to Tomcat

4) I hav created a simple jsp file to access the tags and hav placed it at :

The code is as follows :
<head><title>Displaying a CustomTag</title></head>
<%@ taglib uri="/myTLD" prefix="myTags" %>


But when i run this file, an error is displayed saying /myTLD doesnt exist. I hav checked with a couple of books and followed exactly as they hav mentioned but to no avail. the error persists.....

Thnkz in advance for the help.
