I'm experiencing problems with paths in my JSP. Look at this code below: <%@taglib uri="/WEB-INF/lib/dbtags.jar" prefix="jdbc" %> My Windows NT system doesn't find the file and doesn't compile unless I put the absolute path like so: <%@taglib uri="file:c:\\forte4j\\Development\\cdshopcart\\WEB-INF\\lib\\dbtags.jar" prefix="jdbc" %> Also...notice that I have to use back slashes because I'm running Windows. (This makes my code platform specific) How do I fix this problem. Do I have to set classpaths? Will setting the classpath fix the problem? Thanks, Enrico
That taglib location can go in your web.xml file. In my web.xml file I have: <taglib> <taglib-uri>JSPbook/taglib</taglib-uri> <taglib-location> /WEB-INF/jsp/JSPbook-taglib.tld </taglib-location> </taglib> In the JSP page: <html><head> <title>Student Signin</title></head> <body> <%@ taglib uri="JSPbook/taglib" prefix="ch11" %>
