Hi there. I'm the reference-implementation lead for JSTL. The Proposed Final Draft for JSTL, which is, in all important ways, equivalent to the final draft, is available from
The reference implementation is available through Jakarta Taglibs at
and is essentially finalized in preparation for the 1.0 release at the end of the month.
By the way, I'm also the author of an upcoming book on JSTL, so I'm hardly unbiased -- but while "More Servlets and JSPs" is a great book, its JSTL chapters cover only a very early draft of the standard tag library, and the spec has changed and
added dozens (perhaps hundreds) of new features since then. JSTL now provides tags for XML processing, text importing, database access, internationalization, and number/date formatting. It also includes a new, standard expression language that will become the core of the JSP 1.3 expression language. My book, and the O'Reilly one, will cover all these features; the older books are already quite out of date.
