Hello there,

I am using Eclipse 3.1's MyEclipse Plug-In, JDK 1.5, and Tomcat 5.5.9...

Was teaching myself JSTL, today, and under testJSTL/root/WEB-INF/lib, I placed the jstl.jar and Eclipse also placed this into the project's build path...

Here's the code for my simple JSP file, called TestImport.jsp:

Under the Problems view in Eclipse, I got the following error message:

Well, I figured that since my build scripts placed the jstl.jar under build/App_Name/Root/WEB-INF/lib, that it would work once I started up Tomcat and invoked the web page from the browser...

This is the HTTP Status 500, I got when I pointed my browser to:


It seems such like such a simple issue... Any suggestions, tips, and help would be appreciated to its fullest!

Many, many thanks!
