JSTL not working

I've used jstl before, but I've just started using it in the last few months.

I've been working on this one issue where I thought I might be saving the DB results wrong in the bean or I wasn't setting up the ArrayList correctly in the servlet. And then it came back to was i setting up the <c:for each> and other tags correctly.

But right now I don't know. I went back to just trying a simple sample to just test it.

here is the jsp

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN""xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<title> Test JSTL</title>
<%@ page contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8" language="java"%>
<%@ taglib uri="" prefix="c" %>
<c:forEach var="i" begin="1" end="10" step="1">
<cut value="${i}" />

and here are the results
${cnt.count} value is : ${member} ${i}

I've moved the taglib into WEB-INF and tried that to no avail. I moved the reference to the taglib above and below the html file.

We are using websphere 6.0 and as I've said in other posts, if i need to install JSTL or something like it on webspehre, then it is useless to me because I am not the server admin and have no access to the server besides deploying my web app.

Just trying to figure out if I'm doing something wrong?

Looks like the EL is not enabled.

Is Websphere 6 a JSP 2.0 container?

I agree. Here's the link:
