JSTL tags not recognized on JSP (weblogic)

I am trying to use the JSTL Core tag libraries in my application deployed on weblogic 10.3

I copied the JSTL libraries (standard.jar & jstl.jar) to WEB-INF/lib.

Declared in jsp:

<%@ taglib prefix="abc" uri="" %>


<web-app id="WebApp_ID" version="2.4" xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="">



<c:import var = "mageData" url="" />
<c:if test = "${mageData!=null && not empty mageData}">
<c:out value="${mageData}" />


Nothing displays on the browser (as if the code does not exist)

Clicking on "View Source" of the webpage shows the

<c:import var = "mageData" url="" />
<c:if test = "false">
<c:out value="" />

Please assist.

When you say:

, it means that the core tag libraries located at the respective uri can be accessed using the prefix provided. You have to use abc as the prefix I believe. Why are you using c? Read this tutorial to understand how tag libraries work.
