Tomcat 4.1 is an old beast. Did you declare the library in web.xml ? (which you don't need to in Tomcat 6.0)

With JSP1.2, you should even need it (sorry for asking).

Where did you put the library ?

You mean WEB-INF ?

1. Remove the TLD file. You don't need to extract it.
2. Remove the taglib declaration in web.xml
3. Leave the JAR in WEB-INF/lib

It is usually the opposite

Can you show your directory structure ? And be very careful to lower and upper cases. Post the directory and file names, exactly like they appear on your system.

And be aware that this is only necessary in Tomcat 4 and older containers.

P.S. It's WEB-INF not web-inf.
