I know that Tomcat 5 is the 1st version that supports Servlet 2.4 specifications. However one of my project's third party tool has support only for Tomcat 4 & not version 5. But I would like to make use of the new features of JSP 2.0 like updated version of el expressions, jstl etc for coding the frontend of some modules of the project.

So experts out there, do u know if there's any way to make Tomcat version 4 support Servlet 2.4 specifications?

Or do u have other suggestions? The limitation is that the 3 party vendor dun intend to support Tomcat 5 yet.

Not that I knw of, but you can use JSTL in Tomcat 4 just by adding in the JSTL jars. They use EL inside of the tags themsleves, and very good they are too.
