Is there a replacement for jstl.jar and standard.jar?

Reference material I'm using for JSTL deployment indicates that addition of the jstl and standard jar files to the Web app.
Googling for theses has run into a circular dead end. The apache site seems to imply that they've been moved somewhere and the links to what would seem to be their implementation results in 404 errors when invoked and hunting around the sun.java (aka. Oracle) site is coming up empty. I can find unofficial copies of these modules but nothing from an actual "formal" download location.
Can anyone shed some light on this? I'm using Tomcat v7.

thanks,
Karl

There isn't one "formal" location as there are different implementations. For some reason, all seem difficult to locate. See the JSP FAQ for the latest known information, which may or may not be currently helpful due to the shifting vagaries of the interwebs.

Also be aware that JSTL 1.2 is generally packaged as a single jar versus the two jars of JSTL 1.1.

I've never seen it distributed as two jars; did that change at some point? The official distribution (at least right now) consists of two jar files just like earlier JSTL versions.

Yeah, I don't know... I nabbed those two jars, they are named differently:
jstl-api-1.2.jar
jstl-impl-1.2.jar

but there is no description of what they are. I'll crack them to see if they match the prior jstl and standard library content, but most of the links for attempting to get any information are either broken or pretty much useless.

Thanks Bear, the FAQ does address this and confirms that those two jars are replacements for what I was hunting for. Sorry for not checking there first.
