I want to use the JSTL in a web application. Does the JSTL come with Tomcat, or does it require a separate download?

Can the JSTL be installed only as part of a web application, or can it also be part of the "global" libraries that Tomcat has available, such as those in the common/lib directory? Could any conflicts arise if JSTL 1.1 were in the common/lib, but then a web app included JSTL 1.0?

I understand that Tomcat 5.x supports JSP 2.0, and so would also support JSTL 1.1. Is there any way to run JSTL 1.1 on Tomcat 4.x?

Separate.

You can put the jars there, but each web app still needs the appropriate declarations.

Could any conflicts arise if JSTL 1.1 were in the common/lib, but then a web app included JSTL 1.0?


Haven't tried it, but I can't think of any obvious problems.

I understand that Tomcat 5.x supports JSP 2.0, and so would also support JSTL 1.1.


Correct.

Is there any way to run JSTL 1.1 on Tomcat 4.x?


No. JSTL 1.1 requires a container that processes EL.
