Subject Re: [Q] Skinny Wars and Taglibs
Date Wed, 05 Sep 2012 08:17:44 GMT
According to the JSP spec, only jars in WEB-INF/lib will be scanned for tld files (rather than
the entire classpath).

If you really want to work around this, you could try copying the tld files out of the respective
jars into your WEB-INF/ directory. The spec says the container will find these (even in a
subdirectory) and use them instead.

We just leave jars with taglibs in the WAR though.

(v2.7).  At first I thought this was going to work great and it almost did.  However, my JSP
pages are now complaining that they cannot find the taglibs.  I am getting the following error:
