Hello everyone,

All im trying to do is set up a small app right now. Very simple jsp

My problem is the project refuses to use the taglib files that in jars
in my build path!

"org.apache.jasper.JasperException: The absolute uri:
cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the jar files deployed with

This is annoying me because i have struts.jar in my projects buildpath
and it explicitly contains both the tld's in its META-INF folder and
everything these tags need.

Has anyone had this problem before? Please help! >.<

The path you show (uri: gets 404
response, so, what is your question?

That is completely irrelevant. It's a URI, not a URL. Even as a URL you'd
have to strip the leading "uri:" off the string.

The question is why the namespace is not recognized. I am no expert but it
usually takes no more than putting the Struts JAR in the WEB-INF/lib/ for the
taglib descriptors and all just to snap into place.

It's not the build class path that counts as much as the run class path. Make
sure the Struts libs are either in the Tomcat shared libs, or equivalent for
your app server, or in the app libs, the WEB-INF/lib/ directory of the
*deployed* application.
