Subject Re: JSTL dependencies on JSP/EL
Date Thu, 26 Oct 2006 19:27:42 GMT
Tomcat 6 is just around the corner, but is pretty easy to build from 
SVN, three steps,
1. svn co trunk
2. cd trunk
3. ant download
4. ant

It generates all the libraries that you'll need, more answers inline

it should come with the container itself. Tomcat 6 will ship with it.
We are also hoping to publish the individual JARs to the ASF maven repo, 
so that they can be utilized independently.

Tomcat doesn't pick it up from Glassfish, it sits in the Tomcat source tree.
