    I think you can look here:
    If you download this jar file:

    copy this .jar to .zip extension and open it with winzip, you'll indeed see .tld files there.
    I'd say there are more than eight of them

    And I think this is taglib:

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

    And these are probably the same links more directly:

    theye do not come from JBoss, but I think they should be standard

    I see you have JSTL 1.2 download.   Will it run on JBOSS 5 ?  

    I'm worried about this  because JSTL version and JSP version needs to be not it ?

    I think it is worth trying JSTL 1.2.
    At least I was trying to find something later at some point, but I think I could not - all links eventually point to these ones
    (look at the links in the above posting - they end up with these 1.2)

    This worked.

    I'm not sure how did you arrive at this ?  they are compatible.
