JSTL Standard question

Posted on 2006-11-19
Last Modified: 2013-11-24
I see in a tutorial that I need to put this for example to use jstl Standard core libraries :

<%@ taglib uri="" prefix="c" %>

But this mean that when a request is done on this page, it will connect to sun website every time,
also I can't work offline ...

What can I do ?

yes , you can work off-line
Instead of
<%@ taglib uri="" prefix="c" %>

you can have
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/c.tld" prefix="c" %>

make sure u have standard.jar, jstl.jar in web-inf/lib  directory

also make sure that you put c.tld in /web-inf  folder .

actually c.tld is in the standard.jar ,so dont worry about c.tld. just import standard.jar, jstl.jar and put them in web-inf/lib  directory

Go to   
Click on which will download
Once you Unzip it , you will find a lib folder and inside that you will find two jars  standard.jar and jstl.jar. copy- paste them into your web-inf/lib directory.

Thank u, but it seems I need to use the <@taglib directive

"To use the Standard Taglib from its Jakarta Taglibs distribution, simply copy the JAR files in the distribution's 'lib' directory to your application's WEB-INF/lib directory. "
"Using the Standard Taglib libraries is simple; you simply need to import them into your JSP pages using the taglib directive. For instance, to import the 'core' JSTL library into your page, you would include the following line at the top of your JSP page, as follows:

    <%@ taglib uri="" prefix="c" %>"

I tried without the taglib directive but then it doesn't work

I have several

How do I know which one to choose ?

-Just a reminder:  if you are still using old version, JSP 1.2 containers (such as Tomcat 4), You may need c-1_0.tld and c-1_0-rt.tld.  If you are using JSP 2.0, forget what I said.
