It's WEB-INF/lib not LIB.

Yes, it is lib. I've edited my original post.

What else ends up in WEB-INF/lib? Are the servlet and JSP API jars being copied there? They should not be.

No those 2 files are not there. I'm using maven and the scope for those two is set to "provided". There are a bunch of other jars but those are related to CXF and some other stuff and not to JSP/JSTL.

I'm still battling this one. Anyone care to help?

The final built war file (generated using maven) runs fine now when deployed on tomcat 6 installation using the tomcat manager. But inside Eclipse it still refuses to cooperate!

Please be sure to post Eclipse questions in the IDEs forum. I have moved this there for you.

Well, I thought about it but the error is still the same as the original in the title. It's pretty much a JSTL issue still. So didn't make sense to me to move it from JSP to IDE forum. But anyway, as long as someone is able to help...
