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?
