Subject RE: downloading JSTL..
Date Tue, 09 Jan 2007 20:48:16 GMT
so would I just dump all of the .tld files in my WEB-INF sub directory titled tlds?

For instance, I've got a directory in my webapps folder, then a WEB-INF directory for it,
then inside it I've got a directory titled tlds.

Just throw them in there?

No.  The version of JSTL to use depends on what version of the Servlet
spec your webapp is configured to use, not what version of Tomcat
they're running in.

The error you're getting has to do with parsing an XML file, probably
web.xml.  It's complaining that:

> SEVERE: Parse Fatal Error at line 3 column 6: The processing instruction

Delete the two lines above, and any spaces before, the <?xml
version="1.0"?> (or similar) which is on line 3.  It has to be the
very first thing in the file.

Yes, it should be fine.

... which is why I said, "Ignore the Struts-related parts." :)
