Description Jon Pierce 2002-05-30 18:32:15 UTC
The setup instructions say that you should be able to just drop jstl.jar and 
standard.jar into your web app's lib directory and go.  But neither of these 
jars contain the org.saxpath package that is used by a number of the XML tag 
implementations.  All supporting classes for the JSTL implementation should be 
included in standard.jar.
Comment 1 Shawn Bayern 2002-05-30 18:48:02 UTC
Including other packages in a distribution's single JAR is not standard, modern 
practice, and it is not required by the current instructions:

 To use this distribution with your own web applications, simply copy the JAR
 files in the 'lib' directory to your application's WEB-INF/lib directory.

If you know of other instructions that disagree with this and haven't been 
updated, please let us know; the information would be appreciated.  But the 
current organization of classes is intentional and shouldn't be inconvenient.

OK, consider this bug a request to fix the documentation.  Here's the offending 

"To use the Standard 1.0 taglib, include the 'jstl.jar' and 'standard.jar' 
files in your application's WEB-INF/lib directory."

Thanks - all fixed now.  Changes should show up on the site tomorrow.
