spring taglib garbage

Fri, Aug 4, 2006

I mean, is this crap or what? I’m using JSTL in my JSPs and getting this error:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: The absolute uri: http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application

http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core - this is jstl 1.1 url but you get jstl 1.0 with the Spring distro. So it doesn’t work.

I had to go get the latest jakarta taglibs coz the Sun JSTL distro is even worse. I downloaded their bloatware J2EE SDK, all I wanted was the jstl stuff but oh no, Sun bloatsite made me download the whole 130Mb crap. Which didn’t install at the end of it. That’s once you’ve navigated past the usual crap on their site about licenses, advertising and other brain dead crap.

So I finally got the 1.1 stuff from the Jakarta Taglibs site and now it works!
