[facelets] custom taglibrary not recognized

I'm building a JSF custom taglibrary where I define some template components. I've been struggling for a few days to solve a problem with my custom tags. The problem is that my custom tags are not rendered. This is what I've added to my project:

web.xml: (I've only picked the relevant code)



and the costuom messages.xhtml:

When I want to use the tag library in one of my pages, I simply add the namespace as following:

When I load the page in my browser, the <gtd:messages/> tag remains as it is in the html source.

When I google for similar problems, I'm finding threads where people wrote their own renderer class and added it also to the faces-config.xml. But as far as I know, I shouldn't edit the faces-config.xml when I use the <tag><tag-name/><source/></tag> tags to tag my custom facelet templates.

Can anybody help me to fix this problem?

I've fixed it already

I've added the following line to my gtdonline.taglib.xml file:

Now, the taglib is picked up during initialization and the custom tag is rendered in the browser
I'm thinking about a new battle cry. Maybe "Not in the face! Not in the face!" Any thoughts tiny ad?
