Download latest Tag Library...

This site:

http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-taglibs/nightly/projects/request/

to download tag library seemingly has been retired.

The book I am reading requires for me to download the latest Tag Library from this site. It is no longer available.

Question: Where can I download the latest Tag Library?

Thank you.

With this link, only Glass Fish is utilized? It should be independent of wheather we use Glass Fish or Tomcat; but I am asking just to be sure. Could you please comment on this?

Thanks

FYI, I am trying to learn about how to use tag library. And that sadid, I am sure either my work computer has them somewhere or I can use what is on the network. So, Iwhere can I search to locat it to use it instead of doenloading with what I already have?

I am expected to execute something like:

>jar xvf request-examples.war

Also, if you may, send me an email in m profile.

Thanks.

>FYI, I am trying to learn about how to use tag library  
Which tag library ?  

>jar xvf request-examples.war  
I am confused here. Don't you have Tomcat installed on your machine ?
What are you trying to do at the command line ?

Mike EghtebasDatabase and Application DeveloperAuthor Commented:
it says, download tag library and uncompress it. you will have jakarta-taglibs containing required to deploy and test tag library (i am assuming any tag library example will do, request most likely).

then, it adds: look inside request directory for:
- request.jar
- request.tld
- request-doc.war
- request-examples.war <-- contains a sample web application to demonstrate how to use the Request Tag Library.

the idea here is to go through the strucrure of the web application and the content of various files. now exuting:

...webapps\begjsp-ch06\>jar xvf request-examples.war

if successful, you should see several messages confirming the creation and extraction of directories and files. To start up
:
http...webapps\begjsp-ch06\

to bring up index.html  ... click submit..

book says. I tried to type some parts of the book I am reading. "Begining JSP Web Developememnt" by Jayson Falkner... page136 chapter 6 in case you have the book.

I don't have that book.  
> >jar xvf request-examples.war  
But this command  extracts the files from the war.
To see the options for the jar command,  type  
...webapps\begjsp-ch06\>jar

Which tag library are you trying to get here?
0
Mike EghtebasDatabase and Application DeveloperAuthor Commented:
Index.html will com up and on it there will be a submit button. Up on clicking on this button, request.jsp and response.jsp tags are engaged then the book will expalin some points about the process.

Here my questions and concerns are:

- to locate and download tag library.
- uncompreess the download.
- run jar command (would this mess up my computer? if the tag library already exists, etc).

From that point on it should be easy to follow. I can open a new question if this is becoming a never endin thread.

re:> Which tag library are you trying to get here?

I suppose request/response in fact if they are tags? Otherwise, I will find out later. At this point what tags are involved are sort of irrelevant if you may.

for this post purpose: - How to locate and download tag library.

The link says: JSTL is available in different versions

1. You could suggest what should I download based on my JDK and Tomcat version.
2. If I downoad it and uncompress it, would it mess up what I may have in my laptop?

Ther rest (if any additional questions), we can handle later.

I wll post my JDK and Tomcat versions shortly.

Download jstl-1.2.jar from

Put the jar into  
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\common/lib  

>2. If I downoad it and uncompress it,
You don't need to unzip it. Just go ahead and use it in your web app.

I downloaded to ...\coomon\lib
Now there are 73 files in this folder including jstl-1.2.jar. From my previouse post, I was supposed to download "Jakarta-Taglibs" containing :

- request.jar
- request.tld
- request-doc.war
- request-examples.war

And I was supposed to run

>jar xvf request-examples.war  

to get and run "index,html" in it to see index_html.JPG attached and upon clicking a submit button I will get another page shown in irequest_jsp.JPG attached.

I will follow the rest in another thread because this is getting to long.

Thank you very much for your time. I hope to hear from you.

Did you write a simple JSP to test JSTL ?

re:> sorry not accepting images although they are under 50 kb each.
I am revising to read: sorry EE was not accepting images uplloades for some reason (although they were under 50 kb each).

re:> Did you write a simple JSP to test JSTL ?

I am not quite sure what JSTL is. And my intenton in this thread was to follow what the book I am reading says. The book wanted me to open index_html included in the subfolders after I excute:

>jar xvf request-examples.war  

This first opens index_html.JPG. On this page there is a submit button which upon click opens irequest_jsp.JPG. I will try to upload these images again hopping they will upload.

No chance. It tells me: "Please enter a description for each file you uploaded. " but doen't give me the usual text box to enter the description of the upload.

What year was that book published ?  I think they are talking about
http://attic.apache.org/projects/jakarta-taglibs.html 
http://tomcat.apache.org/taglibs/

Anyway I suggest that you learn  JSTL.  
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaServer_Pages_Standard_Tag_Library   
Download it(see above) and just start playing with it.  Remember google is your friend.
