I see there are a few tag libraries out there like JSTL and Jakarta, which is the best? I am using a Tomcat server.

Thanks,
Eric

Umm, JSTL. Why look for some proprietary tag library when a standardized one is available?

Or are you asking whose JSTL implementation is best?

I guess I am not sure what I am asking now. I just started looking at tag libraries, and I thought JSTL was the tag library from Sun, JSTL is a generic term?. I guess I am asking of all the tag libraries out there, which one should I spend my time developing with?

Thanks,
Eric

Well, different libraries may do different things, but for what it does, the JSTL should be used in favor of any proprietary library as it is the standard.

Jakarta Taglibs hosts the Standard Taglib 1.1, an implementation of the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL), version 1.1, which was developed under the Java Community Process.
