JSTL: How to use it without internet connection

I wish to use JSTL, to import the tag libary into your jsp you need to specify the uri as http://java.sun.com/jstl/core. if my pc is not connected to the internet how does it locate the tag library??

In which location do i need to store it in the web-inf directory?

Where can I download the directories from?

You'll need a servlet container such as Tomcat (jakarta.apache.org)

When this is installed, there will be a webapps directory.  Under there, you create another directory to hold your web site (eg myApp).  Beneath that is the WEB-INF directory.

When Tomcat is running, you can connect to it on your local machine using, for example,

http://localhost:8080/myApp

This will look for a default file (index.jsp, index.html etc.).  Or you can specify the file, eg.

http://localhost:8080/myApp/index.jsp

The declaration
<%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="http://java.sun.com/jstl/core" %>

is just to identify the "c" namespace.  You don't need to be connected to the Internet for this to work.  The c.tld file goes directly into WEB-INF and all the jar file go into WEB-INF/lib.  

That's all.
