I have created a Struts web application. It consists of login page,action class,form bean & success jsp page. when i click on the submit button in login page, the control has to go to action class & so on. Based on the logic , i have created code.

I am getting the following exception when the login.jsp page is loaded,

org.apache.JasperException: File "/WEB-INF/lib/struts-html.tld" not Found

1. Login.jsp

<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/lib/struts-html.tld" prefix="html"%>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/lib/struts-logic.tld" prefix="logic"%>
<html:form name="Login" action="LoginAction">
Name : <html:text property="name"></html:text><br>
Password : <html:text property="password"></html:text><br>

I am sure that all tld files(struts-html.tld,struts-logic.tld etc) are in /WEB-INF/lib/ and am using Tomcat5.0.2

Even though i keep all tld files in required directory, i am getting "tld not found" error.

Even i tried another option like this


Does anybody say why it is giving an error?

Is there any tomcat version problem?

If you're using Struts 1.3 or above, you should be using the namespace instead of the physical location of the tld file. Example:

If you are using an earlier version of Struts, don't put the tld files in WEB-INF/lib. That's reserverd for jar files. Put them in the root of WEB-INF or in another subdirectory (e.g. WEB-INF/taglibs) instead.

I agree. Here's the link:
