Eclipse jsp jstl error – Cannot find the tag library descriptor for http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core

You get that error for the missing tld when standard.jar and jstl.jar are not found. If you are using maven, adding the following should fix it.

<!– standard.jar –>
<dependency>
<groupId>taglibs</groupId>
<artifactId>standard</artifactId>
<version>1.1.2</version>
</dependency>

<!– JSTL –>
<dependency>
<groupId>javax.servlet</groupId>
<artifactId>jstl</artifactId>
<version>1.1.2</version>
</dependency>

Try restarting Eclipse if the error doesn’t go away after adding this.

Do drop me a comment if this or something else works for you!
