Struts within an existing application

I am trying to understand an existing struts application. I have an existing struts application which has its own build.xml file and everything. I wrote a simple jsp file to add to this application. But, when I make the war file and deploy it, it doesn't not recognize the struts tags like <html:form> etc.. But, the other jsp's have their struts tags properly constructed into html. What am I missing ? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

What you are most likely missing is the custom tag library declaration as in:

<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-html.tld" prefix="html" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-bean.tld" prefix="bean" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-logic.tld" prefix="logic" %>
