iam learning jstl.i have added standard.jar and jstl.jar to my classpath. iam using Eclipse Exadel studio.I wrote some sample code using jstl core tags.But i have read that for using tag libraries i must put a corresponding .tld file for each tag library in /WEB-INF directory and use taglib element in web.xml to include tag library.But i dont find any .tld file in my /WEB-INF directory and taglib element in web.xml.Are they optional?
