You need both the Struts-EL and Struts jars.  If you look in the "struts-el"
distribution, you'll see a "strutsel-exercise-taglib" application.  You can
inspect that application to see the jars that you'll need.  If you're getting
errors from the validation javascripts, I'm not sure what is happening there.
