JSPG0047E: Unable to locate tag library for uri

Posted on 2013-12-11
Last Modified: 2013-12-16
I am trying to use struts tag libraries in a .jsp for a 2.4 level j2ee web application.  I have the following at the top of my .jsp:

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

the struts.jar file is in my classpath.  The meta-inf/tlds folder in the struts.jar file contains the struts-logic.tld file.  In that file the correct uri is defined: <uri></uri>

However, when I run the application in Rational Application Developer, I get the exception below.  Please help: JSPG0047E: Unable to locate tag library for uri       at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at      at$      at$

What version of Websphere/RAD are you using?

Two things to try out,

1. Copy the tld folder from META-INF (from jar) to  WEB-INF/tld Declare the tld in web.xml just like doing it for JSTL. (This is the old approach)

2. I'm not so familiar with RAD so just see if there is a file generated for the libraries (may be xml) file and check if the struts jar is included (with no spacing issue)

There is this known issue for v6.1, could it be the problem?

Are you running it with the "Resource within the workspace" option? Have you tried the "Resources on server" option to see if there is a difference, as per the above issue?
