I can use servlets and JSP's successfully within my tomcat application but when I try to use a taglib I get the following error

org.apache.jasper.compiler.CompileException: /home/howesda/OOH/hello.jsp(0,0) Unable to open taglibrary mytaglib.tld : Parse Error in the tag library descriptor: External entity not found: "".
     at org.apache.jasper.compiler.JspParseEventListener.handleDirective(

The server where this is running is behind a firewall, but I don't believe that it's actually trying to resolve this address externally anyway. I've read in some other posts that it should be looking in webserver.jar for this information but that does not exists within my tomcat installation.

Any ideas?

I'm using Tomcat 3.3.1
