JSTL on Tomcat 3

Is it possible to use JSTL on Tomcat version 3? I have read somewhere that you need at least a JSP 1.2 (or higher) container installed in order to use JSTL.

Obviously I'd love to upgrade the container to version 5, but I don't have any control over that at the moment and I'm trying to avoid having to use scriptlets now and then go in and rewrite the code using JSTL next year when we upgrade Tomcat to version 5.

Thanks,
Jim

Sorry. JSTL 1.0 requires JSP 1.2, and JSTL 1.1 requires JSP 2.0.

Whoever is holding back onto Tomcat 3 -- which is incredibly ancient at this point -- needs to be hit with a large and heavy clue-bat.

A worthy endeavor, but writing scriptless JSP pages isn't really feasible without JSP 2.0.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
