JSTL tag library import problem

Previously I have used
<%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" prefix="c" %> for the JSTL tag library while using IBM RAD7. Now when I tried it in a web project in Eclipse 3.3 I get the error: "Cannot find the tag library descriptor for http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core"

There can't be any Internet connection problem because I also use a Spring tag which URI(http://www.springframework.org/tags) does not produce such an error.

What release of JSP is the Eclipse project using? Tag libs in JSP 2.0 can be either under WEB-INF or in a jar file under lib. If you can locate the TLD you can check to see what the uri value should be.

I don't know, its Eclipse 3.3. The project was created with Dynamic Web Module 2.4 and Java 1.5. but I have also tried with 2.5 with no effect.

Anyway. This problem does not occur with Eclipse 3.2

You could always download the JSTL yourself and place it into you web app following the rules for where to place TLDs. The uri should not change since it is the standard name for the JSTL uri
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
