What the heck is this " Unable to read TLD "META-INF/taglib.tld" from JAR file "file:/C:/Documents and Settings/RCMSWorkSpace/RCMS/WebContent/WEB-INF/lib/sitemesh-2.2.1.jar": java.lang.NullPointerException."

Looks like one of my jar got ripped off. what is the solution for this folks!

Have you tried it with a fresh copy of that file?

Well, trying with a fresh copy involves removing the old one.

Does the jar file actually have the file that's claimed as missing? What software is missing it?

i'm using eclipse and trying to run my application. All of my jars are located in C:. To add a new jar in my local repository, I go to the topmost tree, go to the properties, and add external jar. but what i see in the tree is the jar name with the address...different from other jars. what am i missing?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
