Subject Problem on Tomcat 5.5 and JSTL1.2
Date Sat, 08 Jan 2005 18:09:32 GMT

My first test with MyFaces becomes a little bit frustrating.

Lets tell you my experience:
My Environment:
  JDK 1.5.0_01
  Tomcat 5.5.4
  JSTL (Jakarta taglibs standard 1.1.2)

I have tried to follow the instructions in 
"Getting started". The result after completing the steps under 
"Installing and Running the Examples"
wasn't realy amusing:

    * A new Webapp myfaces-examples exist in the Manager utility.
    * There were three INFO trace messages in the logs (No WARN or ERROR).
    * The access to the URL http://localhost:8080/myfaces-examples
      results (after some compiling delay) in a blank browser window.

The analysis of the HTTP header responsed from the Server shows a 
response with Content-Length: 0.
Static HTML pages will be displayed.
A simple JSP page without any faces stuff responses Content-Length: 0.

This behaviour will be seen because the JSTL 1.1 resides in shared/lib 
and myFaces comes with an incompatible JSTL Version in WEB-INF/lib.

The solution:
Deleting jstl.jsr and jsp2.0.jar from WEB-INF/lib directory and all 
works fine.

IMO the comming releases of MyFaces should omit the distribution of JSTL 
libs to prevent described behaviour.
