Hi,
Can anybody tell me how to use JSP custom tag library in visual age. I need to know where to place the jar file so that the jsp pages are able to find the classes. Using WebSphere test environment to test the application.
Any help is greatly appreciated
Thanks

Thanks Kyle.
The link was very useful. But I am facing some problems when i am trying to add Appache Tomcat Test environment to visual age.
The error I am getting is
The package org.apache.jasper.compiler cannot be specified by both IBM Websphere Test Environmnet and Apache Tomcat Test Environment.
The package javax.servlet cannot be specified by both servlet api and apache tomcat test environment.
Do I need to delete these 2 packages from the features in order to add apache tomcat test environment or is there any other way to get it done??
Thanks in advance.

If you want to use the Tomcat test environment, you'll have to remove the WTE test environment feature. They can't reside in VAJ at once.

You also might be able to glean some hints from my struts article: http://www7.software.ibm.com/vad.nsf/Data/Document2558?OpenDocument&p=1&BCT=3&Footer=1

Thanks for the reply.
I added the tomcat test environment but i am not able to get the example custom tag running(from the above link).
Get the following error message
Unable to open taglibrary http://station.auction.net/as-taglib : Could not locate TLD META-INF/taglib.tld
The tld path is located in web.xml
<taglib-location>/WEB-INF/as-taglib.tld</taglib-location> .
Also we are using lot of packages from websphere test environment. Is there a way to get custom tags working in websphere test environment without tomcat test environment?
