Hi All

I have a question. I am using JSTL1.0 and JSP2.0 and my dtd in web.xml is pointing to version 2.3. I am using weblogic8 as the server. My question is I could not use expression in a custom tag. Why? I have the .tld and tag class written.

Something like this:

Thank you

Code Freak,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us in the JSP forum, but there
are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are
required. Please take a look at the
JavaRanch Naming Policy and
adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

You can change it here

There's your problem. Incompatible versions. This is all covered in the JSP FAQ.
