Installed tomcat 7 can get html to work, not jsp

I made a folder called myApp and put a page index.jsp inside. I copied and pasted WEB-INF from ROOT to myApp. The contents of the jsp are the following:



I get this error:
HTTP Status 500 - The absolute uri: http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application

A further message states:
The server encountered an internal error (The absolute uri: http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application) that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

Did you drop the JSTL jar files into WEB-INF/lib?

No, why would I do something useful like that?

But unfortunately that didn't change things. I made the folder lib in WEB-INF and then put jstl-1.2.jar in it and then opened up http://localhost:8080/myApp/ but to no avail.

Do I need to restart the server or something similar?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
