Problem using JSTL in Tomcat

I am runing my webapp in Tomcat 5.0.28 and would like to use <c:forEach> to iterate over a collection.
I have added jstl.jar in my WEB-INF/lib and added
<%@ taglib uri="" prefix="c" %>in my JSP.

When I run it I get an exception org.apache.jasper.JasperException: The absolute uri: cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application

Is there anything else I need to do?
