There are a few errors in your setup. I'm not sure if they're causing your problem or not, but it's best to get everything squared away before diagnosing any further.

Why? The tld files are already in the jar files in the classpath. Extracting them to the file system is not only unnecessary, it can cause issues with versions mismatches going forward. Remove these files.
