was trying the dice roll example given in hfsj book page no. 393-394 and was getting error in my tld file which says "invalid content was found starting with element uri. one of {":short name} is expected.

i did a search on the same example here at coderanch and found out a similar post where Bear sir told to put <short-name>whatever<short-name>. and it worked.

my question is that why it didn't worked without short-name. in the book there is not short-name tag.

It can depend upon the version of JSP you are using. The XML Schema for the the TLD has changed over time.
