Dear All,

I think there is a problem with Websphere..any one want to see it deploy .war file that contains tag inside tags folder and call it from the jsp like this:

....html page
<%@taglib tagdir="/WEB-INF/tags/" prefix="hi"%>


.../html page

It should work But unfortunately it doesnt and give Big exception:

HTTP Error Code: 500
Error Message:JSPG0047E: Unable to locate tag library for uri /WEB-INF/tags/

Root JSPG0047E: Unable to locate tag library for uri /WEB-INF/tags/ at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at at$ at$
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------Would anyone convince me why websphere is the Best?
why this small .war file contains just one jsp and one tag file doesnt work in Websphere 6.1 and on the other hand , it works perfectly in Jboss and tomcat
Please anyone answer me to protect the nice picture for Websphere before see a lot of Problems that shouldnt be ever appear..

thanks all

Is there a reference to the tld in the web.xml file?

Here's a tutorial on creating taglibs, and using them in WebSphere. This war file works fine in both WAS 5.x and WAS 6.x. Just make sure you have all the requirements.
