This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
The web container searches the META-INF directories of all the jar files in the classpath.
When a TLD is found that has a <URI> stanza that matches the URI in the taglib declaration, that TLD will be used. In our example, while searching the struts-taglib-1.3.5.jar file, it finds that the file META-INF/tld/struts-bean.tld has a <URI> tag containing "http://struts.apache.org/tags-bean", so this is the TLD that is used.
