taglib uri not found

I have a JSP with the following taglib:

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

Tomcat gives me an error (in localhost.2010-01-11.log) when a device attempts to log in to my webapp as follows:

SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet jsp threw exception
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: The absolute uri: http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application

We have other webapps running on this same instance of Tomcat that do not have a problem with this line in the JSP. The web.xml is basically identical between this webapp and the others, but the other webapps are SpringFramework based, this one is not.

Any ideas?

If you don't have the standard.jar and the jstl.jar  in your web app's lib folder,  then add them.  
I just keep them in Tomcat's  lib folder ( and  not in each web app) which makes them available to all web apps.
You should version 1.1 or 1.2
