cross context jsp include

I have servlet "A" forwarding to "a.jsp" under project a. In "a.jsp" I have the
following JSTL line :


<c:import url="/includes/doingheader.htm" context="/extemplates/"/>


but when this runs it produces the following exception :

javax.servlet.ServletException: Unable to get RequestDispatcher for
Context: "/extemplates/" and URL: "/includes/doingheader.htm". Verify
values and/or enable cross context access.



"extemplates" is a web project B defined in MyEclipse 3.81 with a folder
"includes".

How do I allow "a.jsp" to cross reference another project (B).

Eclipse 3.01
Tomcat 5.0.25
JSTL 1.0
JDK 1.4.2

Can someone steer me in the right direction please.

Set the crossContext attribute to "true" for the Context entry in server.xml

Aside: why are you using JSTL 1.0 with Tomcat 5? You should be using JSTL 1.1.
