It will be support at JSP2.0.
In my opinion,copy some jars
and tlds to your web application
and jsp container(like tomcat4.0+),
it will work.
It's certenly a part of j2ee(j2ee 1.4).

You can start using the JSTL with at the moment with any JSP 1.2 compliant server, such as Tomcat 4.
The specification and support for the expression language used within the JSTL is being migrated into JSP 2.0 and as Stub said, this will be a part of J2EE 1.4. As far as JSTL goes, I think that it will remain a separate specification, outside the realms of the JSP spec.
Check out http://jakarta.apache.org/taglibs/doc/standard-doc/intro.html for more JSTL information and downloads.

Thanks Simon and Stub.
I am a bit confuse. Is JSTL part of jsp? or is it a third party product? When Simon says it is part of j2ee1.4, does he means that one no longer need to make the jar available in the classpath in order to use it?
Thanks Ras

It will be surely a part of J2EE.
