JSTL stands for JavaServer Pages Standard Tab Library. It is a set of JavaSW tag libraries that simplify coding on JSPsW, giving your JSP page a tag (like HTMLW and XMLW) look-and-feel rather than a scriptlet/Java look-and-feel. Personally, I think JSTL is a great tool for performing tasks such as iterating over relatively simple data structures and similar tasks. Some developers act as if scriptletS code is evil, but in my opinion, scriptlets do have their place. In my opinion, JSTL is great for simple stuff while scriptlet code is best for stuff that would be extremely difficult to try to do in JSTL.

In this tutorial, I'll show how to set up JSTL for your application, and describe a little about how JSTL works.

The JSTL jarW files are hosted on the ApacheSW Jakarta Taglibs site, located at akarta[dot]apache[dot]org/taglibs/. At the time of this writing, you can download the JSTL jars at Within the zip file that you can download are two jar files, jstl.jar and standard.jar.

Add jstl.jar and standard.jar to the WEB-INF/lib directory of your web application project, and include them in your project's classpathW while you work on your project. In the old days, you would need to add 'tld' entries to your web.xmlW file. However, these days, this is unnecessary with the current JSP specification, since the tag libraries can actually be found within the jar files.
