JSP 1.2 compatable -Not specifying the core tags in web.xml

Hello I have a web application that I have developed using the latest version of JSP/Tomcat etc ..and works just fine.But when I port it to TomCat server (4.1.18) it fails to recoganize the JSTL tags even though the tld's and the jars are present .

So

Should I

1.add the Tag lib path to the web.xml

2.Is there anyway by which I could avoid this ..say by downloading simething ?


Thanks

I work on websphere and we always define the jstl tld in web.xml, and the jar is in WEB-INF/lib directory.


 <taglib>
    <taglib-uri>http://java.sun.com/jstl/core</taglib-uri>
     <taglib-location>/WEB-INF/c.tld</taglib-location>
</taglib>

You can directly specify the tag lib path in jsp:
<%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="http://java.sun.com/jstl/core" %>

Also, make sure you are using JSTL 1.0 instead of 1.1. Tomcat 4.1 does not support JSTL 1.1.
