Hi friends I have problem regarding tld.
I have following files.


//a.tld file

//jsp file : Test.jsp


When I test the jsp file I get this errorrg.apache.jasper.JasperException: /Test.jsp(6,2) The function rolldice cannot be located with the specified prefix

I doubt that I am wrong in creating tld.By the way I did not create web.xml
for this project since the book(HFSJ SCWCD 1.4) does not tell me to do so.
Head First Servlet and Jsp(ch 8,page 389).

What about your "function-singnature" tag ? ;) I've never heard of the "funtion" tag either. And it looks like "uri" is not where it should be. I doubt that this TLD is correct

It's the means by which EL functions are declared.

It was intended to be a joke ;) There's a spell miss in the tag name : "funtion" -> "function"

Yes, you will always get "1" output because...

return ((int)Math.random()*6+1);

...should be...

return ((int)(Math.random()*6)+1);

Hello All,

I did the same, but no luck for me.

I have Eclipse EE. Tomcat 6.0.

Below is the program : -

DiceRoller class for static function:

package foo;

public class DiceRoller {

public static int rollDice()
{
return (int) ((Math.random() * 6) + 1);
}

}

------------

MyFunctions.tld --- I placed this file under WEB-INF

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<taglib version="2.0">

<tlib-version>1.2</tlib-version>

<uri>DiceFunction</uri>
<function>
<name>rollIt</name>
<function-class>foo.DiceRoller</function-class>
<function-signature>int rollDice()</function-signature>
</function>

</taglib>

------------------------------

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>
<%@ taglib prefix="mine" tagdir="/WEB-INF/myFunction.tld" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>Insert title here</title>
</head>
<body>

${mine:rollIt() }

</body>
</html>

-------------------

index.html as welcome page :

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>Insert title here</title>
</head>
<body>
<form action="Result.jsp" method="get">
Go

<input type="submit"></input>

</form>

</body>
</html>

-------------------------

I'm getting this error at runtime :
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: File "/DiceFuntion" not found


Eclipse highlights uri="DiceFuntion" as can not find the tag library descriptor , hence there is error for ${mine:rollIt()} as well.


While I found one of the IDE(name is not given) offering a template to create .tld file, I had to create on XML under New-Other and change the extension from .xml to .tld

Please please help.
Many thanks.

Pramod

Oops, the code works fine when I make this change :

<%@ taglib prefix="mine" uri="/WEB-INF/myFunctions.tld" %>

The problem is that <%@ taglib prefix="mine" tagdir="/WEB-INF/myFunctions.tld" %> this code shows the below error

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Tag file directory /WEB-INF/myFunctions.tld does not start with "/WEB-INF/tags"

I guess tagdir is not the right keyword for this as error code is showing tags directory which I assume, we use for .tag files.

Please advise.

Many thanks.

Hello Again,

I'm trying to use <cut> tags in jsp & getting this runtime error
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: The absolute uri: http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application

Below is the code :

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>
<%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" %>


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>ReSuLT</title>
</head>
<body>

This is list

<cut value="movielist"></cut>

</body>
</html>

-------------------
The configuration is Tomcat 6.0, Eclipse EE 3.5.2, WebApp version 2.4
When I didn't add jstl.jar & standard.jar , Eclipse displayed unknown tag <cut>

So i added both jar files to Build path/Libraries and CLASSPATH variable.
My friend suggested to me to check if both jars are present in Webapps folder for which I got this :
C:\Tomcat6\apache-tomcat-6.0.29\webapps\examples\WEB-INF\lib\jstl.jar and stanard.jar

I haven't defined anything in web.xml.

Please advise.

Many Thanks,

Hello All,

The issue is solved

Actually, I had to copy two jars jstl.jar and standard.jar from C:\Tomcat6\apache-tomcat-6.0.29\webapps\examples\WEB-INF\lib to C:\Tomcat6\apache-tomcat-6.0.29\lib

Thank you.

Pramod
